Gamber-Johnson has previously won the President's "E" Award in 2014 and “E Star” award in 2018 and has concentrated efforts to continue growing this portion of our business since 2018.

"Our consistent growth in export sales since 2012 is a testament to our effective export strategy," added Gautam Malik, Gamber-Johnson President and COO, "With 95% of the world population residing outside the U.S., our products have empowered mobile workers globally and have become indispensable to first responders worldwide. We have embraced the world's digitization and made export a strategic pillar. This has created American jobs and the proud distribution of American products across 52 countries. This recognition affirms our commitment to excellence and fuels our drive to continue expanding our global footprint."


A huge thank you is owed to our technology partners for entrusting us with our ability to deliver products that meet global market needs. We are proud to continue to increase exports with our multinational company with world headquarters in Central Wisconsin.
