BEHLEN Receives Export Award – Press Release

BEHLEN is going to Receive Export Award at the 2016 CME Gala Dinner

Brandon (MB) – March 4, 2016.  BEHLEN Industries LP will be honored by accepting the Export Award at the Canadian Manufacturing & Exports (CME) 2016 Gala Awards Dinner hosted at the RBC Convention Center in Winnipeg, MB on March 23.  This event is held to celebrate Manitoba’s excellence in manufacturing and exporting.  CME seeks to recognize individuals and companies who have achieved notable success in initiating, improving, or growing a manufacturing business in Manitoba.

The Export award is granted each year to a company demonstrating excellence in expanding into geographic markets and through significant and sustained export sales.  The awarded companies have achieved a certain degree revenue growth either through regular operations or the creation of additional product lines or the innovation of existing designs.

“The diversity of our product line empowers us to provide a variety of cost effective building systems to successfully approach international markets’ needs for industrial, commercial, recreational and institutional facilities” says Sean Lepper, Vice President & General Manager.

BEHLEN’s reach is anything but small.  With landmarks such as the PEAK 2 PEAK gondola terminals used in the 2010 Olympic games, the largest convex style frameless building in the world which houses a FIFA certified soccer field in Siberia, or the roof of the Gangneung Arena in South Korea- to be used extensively in the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics,  BEHLEN’s reach is massive.

In 2015, BEHLEN revolutionized the pre-engineered steel building industry with the unveiling of our new robotic welding cell. While robots in manufacturing are nothing new, we combine the robot with a new combination of software and processes, enabling it to complete custom manufacturing jobs in a way that has not been done before.

Winning the 2016 Export Award is another recognition that BEHLEN Industries is proud to receive, showing our commitment to growing the Manitoba economy and sharing our talent with the world is not going unnoticed.
