CORTEC has received a 2018 Louisiana Lantern Award for excellence in manufacturing and outstanding community service, presented by Louisiana Economic Development (LED).
CORTEC was chosen by Louisiana’s eight regional planning and development districts, based on contributions to the community, employment growth and facility expansion. LED began the Lantern Awards in 1979, and has recognised more than 300 Louisiana manufacturing businesses.
Don Pierson, Secretary, LED said: “Manufacturers drive Louisiana’s economy in the most important ways. They provide good-paying jobs and have a strong multiplier effect, creating even more jobs outside their facilities. Harnessing our talented workforce, they compete and win in a global economy, as they produce vital products that are in demand by companies and consumers.”
Stephen Corte, CORTEC’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, said: “We thank LED for this tremendous honour. This achievement would not be possible without our dedicated workforce and contributions made by every team member at CORTEC. It is our privilege to represent products made in South Louisiana throughout the global petroleum industry. We are proud to share our vibrant culture with our client base and appreciate the support received within our local communities.”
