Company growth related to global economic recovery, improved commodities pricing and product endorsements
April 16, 2012/AUSTIN, TX—Trade Technologies, the global leader in international trade document solutions, announced today its recording-breaking performance figures from 2011. The company processed over $8 billion of international trade transactions for its clients in 2011, completed a record of 25,000 transactions (up 10% from 2010) and achieved record revenues (an increase of 13% over 2010).
“We are very pleased with the performance of the company in 2011,” said Kirk Lundburg, CEO of Trade Technologies. “The slow global economic recovery and improved commodities pricing, combined with our proven product solutions and dedication to customer satisfaction, all contributed to our accelerated growth this past year.”
Since its founding in 1999, Trade Technologies has completed more than 40,000 fully electronic presentations of original letter of credit documents to major trade banks and has processed over $40 billion of international trade payments. Company milestones in 2011 include, opening an eleventh office in Chicago, adding 150 new clients, being awarded a patent on the Trade Technologies software platform and process, and winning the Presidential “E” Award for Exports by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for supporting export growth.
