PLEASANTON, CA - Adept Technology Inc., a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it accepted the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Faces of Trade award in recognition of Adept’s impact on the Pleasanton, CA, community. The award honors Adept’s efforts to increase jobs through trade. John Dulchinos, president and CEO of Adept Technology, accepted the award on behalf of the company at the joint U.S. and Livermore Chamber of Commerce event focusing on the world economy, held June 30th in Livermore, CA.

“We are honored to accept this award in recognition of our commitment to supporting our community,” says John Dulchinos. “Increasing exports and expanding trade is vital to the U.S., especially in challenging economic times. We believe businesses that think globally and utilize as many resources and tools that are available will ultimately benefit their community with more jobs and opportunities.”

“Adept Technology is a prime example of an American business successfully navigating the international marketplace,” says Liz Reilly, director of TradeRoots for the U.S. Chamber. “Our award honors small and medium size companies in this country that are actively engaged in the global marketplace and creating jobs and opportunity.”

Faces of Trade awards are presented to small- and medium-size companies that have demonstrated outstanding international success through exports. Whether they have just entered the international market or have maintained considerable presence over time, the awardees epitomize how good trade policy can lead to the success of small companies. These companies make a tremendous impact on their community by increasing jobs through trade. Faces of Trade companies have fewer than 500 employees, are American owned and operated, and are driving the success of their business by expanding to new markets abroad.
