Harsco Track Technologies receives South Carolina trade group's honor

Harsco Track Technologies (HTT) recently was named the 2004 "World Trader of the Year" by the South Carolina World Trade Center.

The award recognizes HTT's international growth — including equipment orders obtained during the past three years from China, the United Kingdom, Germany, Africa, India and other countries totaling more than $160 million — and the South Carolina government's international trade support for the company.

"Export sales will continue to be a key part of our growth, especially considering that more than 80 percent of the world's railway track is outside the United States," said HTT President Robert Newman in a prepared statement, adding that the company expects about one-third of total 2004 sales to come from international deliveries.

A division of Harsco Corp., HTT offers railroad track maintenance equipment and services.
