DSC Dredge CEO Meets with Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy

Bob Wetta, President/CEO of DSC Dredge, LLC, along with the other Louisiana “E” Award winners, held a meeting in Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy’s office on September 1.

The purpose of the meeting was to recognize the winners for their accomplishments that led to receiving this prestigious award.

The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. In 1961, President Kennedy signed an executive order reviving the World War II “E” symbol of excellence to honor and provide recognition to America’s exporter.

On August 4, 1969, the Secretary of Commerce authorized the President’s “E Star” Award to recognize continuing significant contributions to expand the nature and volume of U.S. exports.

Senator Cassidy was interested in learning about each of the award winners’ businesses, their accomplishments that led to being an award recipient, how they positioned themselves to become exporters and how they can help other Louisiana businesses to export.

“Senator Cassidy was very engaging, sincerely was interested in our businesses and was very interested in having this group mentor other Louisiana businesses,” said Bob Wetta.

Senator Cassidy was impressed to learn that since inception of this prestigious program more than 50 years ago, DSC Dredge is only the third company to ever earn the “E-Star” Award twice.

“We are a small family-owned business, but we are a giant in our industry,” said Charlie Sinunu, Director International Dredge Sales for DSC.  “Our export growth is a testament to the highest level of quality and technology in our equipment and our commitment to after sales service. Our success would have been impossible without the support and assistance from both the State of Louisiana and the US Department of Commerce and US State Department.”

DSC Dredge, LLC, advances the engineering, automation, manufacturing and quality of cutter suction and underwater pump mining dredges. The company operates from three major manufacturing facilities located in Reserve, Louisiana; Poplarville, Mississippi; and Greenbush, Michigan.
