Gerresheimer Momignies in Belgium has been presented with an export award by Awex (Agence wallonne à l'Exportation et aux Investissements Étrangers)

Düsseldorf/Momignies/Liege, December 3, 2014 – Gerresheimer Momignies accepted the Export Grand Prix for Wallonia at a presentation ceremony in Liege. This award honors companies that have made an important contribution to promoting the reputation of Wallonian products abroad. The production facility on the Wallonian-French border manufactures glass bottles and jars for famous cosmetic brands.

The Export Grand Prix is presented to companies with an export quota of at least 70 percent and substantial growth in foreign trade activities over the last three years. A total of 42 companies applied for the award. Gerresheimer’s performance convinced the jury to put it in first place ahead of all the other applicants.

“In our business customers expect quality and reliability, and we’re delighted to accept this award as a very special tribute to all our hard working employees at Momignies,” said Bruno Bürkel, Executive Vice President of Gerresheimer.

There are 535 production line employees at the Momignies plant, which produces many millions of glass bottles and jars for the world of elegance and beauty every year.

“I’m sure that many people all over the world have held a bottle or jar made in Momignies in their hand at some time or other. The fact that they aren’t aware of it is due to the nature of our business. We manufacture products for many big brand names, and they expect excellent quality and discretion from us,” said Nicola Balena, Senior Sales Director Gerresheimer Cosmetics, who knows his discerning customers well.
