Wheeling, Illinois based manufacturer Simmons Engineering Corporation was awarded the coveted Export Achievement Certificate by the United Stated Commercial Services which is part of the Department of Commerce.   The award was presented by Congressman Brad Schneider (Democrat – 10th Congressional District) at an export conference held in Northbrook, Illinois on March 17. 


The Export Achievement Certificate was awarded to Simmons Engineering following their collaboration with the U.S. Commercial Services to open up new export markets. The U.S. Commercial Services Chicago office worked with its counterparts in Russia to identify suitable distributor candidates for Simmons’ products based on requirements provided by Simmons.    Simmons’ International Sales Manager, Morgan Coghill, traveled to Russia to meet these distributor candidates.  One particular distributor stood out from the rest and Simmons began working with them almost immediately.  In fact, a very large shipment was sent to this new partner in February of this year.
