Carmanah Technologies Corporation has been named among BC's Top 25 Exporters in an announcement October 4th by Colin Hansen, Minister of Economic Development and Werner Knittel, Vice President BC Division, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME).

As one of 25 finalists in the 2007 BC Export Awards, Carmanah will take its place among BC's top exporters at the 25th Annual BC Export Awards Gala on November 23rd at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver. BC's top business leaders and government officials will attend this year's gala to help celebrate the announcement of the winners from the eight business categories, and name one company as Exporter of the Year.

According to Knittel, this year's finalists reflect the diversity and quality of exports from across the province, while demonstrating the changing nature of BC's export economy, and the increasing importance of Asia as a trading partner for BC-based businesses. “Many of the companies being recognized are at the forefront of developing BC's Asia Pacific trade relations,” said Knittel.

With more than 250,000 installations worldwide, Carmanah is one of the world's premier suppliers of renewable and energy-efficient technologies, including solar-powered LED lighting, solar power systems, and LED illuminated signage.
