WEST CHESTER, OH-Ohio Governor Ted Strickland awarded the highest honor in exporting for 2007 to Marathon Sensors Inc., a designer, manufacturer and marketer of atmosphere sensors, instrumentation and control systems for various industries. During a ceremony at the Statehouse Atrium, the Governor awarded 31 Excellence in Exporting Awards, naming Marathon the Exporter of the Year 2007.

“Ohio is poised to become a leader in our fast-growing global economy, and we must continue to recognize that opportunities beyond our state borders are vital to Ohio’s economic success,” Strickland said. “These businesses represent the kind of drive, vision and innovation required to be a leader in Ohio’s exporting industry. I’m proud to honor them today.”

Accepting the award were Marathon owners Eric and Yvonne Boltz. “Marathon is proud and excited to receive this honor from Governor Strickland. The employees and partners of Marathon share the responsibility and deserve the recognition for their hard work. We knew that working with quality partners around the globe and not outsourcing our production and parts to cheaper places was the right way to continue,” said Eric Boltz, president of Marathon. “Our sales and service subsidiary in China and licensee in Mexico have worked hard to increase our market and maintain the quality that makes Marathon the best.”

Marathon exports approximately 50% of its products while all manufacturing remains in West Chester, OH.
