Venture Products Earns Exporting Award

Venture Products, maker of Ventrac all-wheel-drive compact tractors and attachments, earns President’s Award for exports.

U.S. Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank recently presented Venture Products with the President’s “E” Award for Exports at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. The “E” Awards are the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

“I am delighted to be recognizing this year’s Presidential ‘E’ Award winners for their outstanding contributions to U.S. exports and congratulate Venture Products Inc. on its outstanding export achievement,” said Blank. “It is businesses like Venture Products that are strengthening the economies of local communities, creating jobs, and contributing to the worldwide demand for ‘Made in the USA’ goods and services.”

“Exporting has enabled us to diversify our revenue streams and weather changes in the marketplace. It allows us to mitigate risk while boosting our competitiveness and bottom lines,” said Dallas Steiner, president of Venture Products. “Our products are exported to over 20 countries, with the strongest countries of export being Sweden, Japan, South Korea and Australia.”

Randy Kitzmiller, director of operations for Venture Products, said, “Export sales over the past three years have grown 80%. This growth has allowed us to double our workforce and build a new manufacturing facility in Orrville, OH.”
