Riviera Beach, FL (April 12, 2013) – Sharon Rinehimer, RGF’s Vice President, accepted the award on behalf of the company at the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 International Days in Tallahassee last week.

Business leaders from across the globe convened to strategize on how to promote and expand international business in Florida and hear from experts and elected officials. Tom Donohue, the President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, spoke at International Days on how Florida’s economy can grow through international trade. Donohue supported the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which he said will lead to more growth. Governor Rick Scott, who also spoke to International Days delegates about the importance of international trade to Florida’s economy, presented the awards to RGF Environmental Group, Inc. and five other Florida manufacturers who have excelled in their export businesses over the past two years. The delegates and award recipients were invited to and attended a cocktail party at the governor’s mansion after the conference.

Ms. Rinehimer has been instrumental in opening up RGF’s Representative Office in Beijing, hiring the marketing/sales team and negotiating distribution and private label agreements for indoor air purification and food purification systems with various large Chinese customers who demand U.S. technologies and products with Made in America superior quality. Our export business to Asia has doubled over the past two years and we anticipate doubling it again just this year. “RGF just six months ago acquired and moved into a 100,000 square feet manufacturing facility on seven acres, and hired 45 new employees, which was necessary due to our increased domestic sales and rapid export growth,” said Ron Fink, President/CEO.

RGF manufactures over 500 environmental products and provides the world with the safest air, water and food without the use of chemicals. RGF has sold over one million PHI-Cells in 33 countries including numerous office buildings, hospitals and government projects in China, Taiwan and Japan.
