Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell, Representative Jim McDermott and Representative Denny Heck visited ECS and our sister company Measurement Technology NW on Friday June 27th and held a press conference at our headquarters to call for reauthorization of the Export Import Bank.
The Export-Import Bank provides loans and credit insurance to help businesses like ours to export goods internationally. ECS relies on the Export-Import Bank to back up our international sales with insurance policies that guarantee payment for our products. The bank celebrates its 80th anniversary this year and has been a win-win proposition for both business and government – the bank generated a $1 Billion return for the US Treasury last year.
It was indeed an honor to host our delegation to US Congress and to represent Washington State’s community of small business companies in support of the Export-Import Bank.
