Research and Development Export Award
03-11-2005Outstanding quality, efficiency and performance characterize the innovative solutions and products of Interstar, a company that manufactures pigments, admixtures and fibre for the concrete industry. “Export markets account for 53 percent of Interstar’s total sales, a significant statistic for the company,” says Interstar President Zachary Gillman. “Having established itself as a leader in the Canadian market, Interstar decided to increase its exports to ensure strong and healthy long-term growth.”
Being chosen as one of Canada’s key exporters is an honour that confirms Interstar’s place in international markets. The award also strengthens the company’s position by increasing its visibility among potential Canadian customers. Interstar has demonstrated its ability to successfully compete with the industry’s largest players on the international scene.
Interstar’s exporting success can be credited to its efficiency, top-quality products and adherence to the principles of “Lean Six Sigma.” Another reason for the company’s success is the importance it attaches to research and development and staff training. It has set up diversified multidisciplinary teams that have implemented innovative methods adapted to the inherent features of each country. Interstar employs local workers to handle distribution and warehouse management, contributing to the well-being of the communities where the company is located. These numerous factors have enabled Interstar to penetrate American, Mexican and, most recently, Brazilian markets.
