Argenta wins American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Exporter of the Year $500 - $5M Award

On the 14th July 2011 Argenta won the American Chamber of Commerce Exporter of the Year $500 - $5M Award.  Argenta received the award for this category based on commitment to innovation, our marketing and business strategies especially in relation to the US market; as well as our financial track record and commitment to corporate citizenship.

The significance of the US market to Argenta was evident in the fact that today we ship approximately 11% of our products to the US via new market channels that were almost non-existent 4 years ago.

AlcheraBio, as US based subsidiary is a source of new US clients & revenue stream to Argenta NZ. Also, 95% of Argenta's NZ-based R&D revenue is generated from US clients; this is a testimony to the strength of our relationship with the US.

The Award’s evening was held at Pullman Hotel in Auckland on the 14th of July 2011 where Tana Umunga was the keynote speaker and the tables were themed with a Rugby Ball as the centerpiece.  Representatives from Argenta enjoyed the evening and the win on the behalf of the company.
