Rep. Price will present company President, Ann Borden, with the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Achievement Certificate, recognizing EOS Remediation’s success in exporting sustainable soil and groundwater remediation technologies to overseas markets.

We feel fortunate to be able to share our innovations globally.” Ms. Borden continued with an appreciation for the opportunities provided by the US Department of Commerce, the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the United Soybean Board, the Small Business Administration and the North Carolina Military Business Center. “These organizations are vital for small businesses to reach global audiences”, she said. “In light of the recent tragedies, we are grateful that our friends and partners in Japan are safe. Our prayers are with the people in Japan.”

In addition to developing sustainable technologies, Solutions-IES provides a wide range of services focused on environmental compliance, site assessment, soil remediation, and groundwater remediation.
