Muskogee, OK, April 15, 2014: The Muskogee-based Advantage Controls has received the 2014 Governor’s Award for Excellence in Exporting. Advantage Senior Vice President Chris Morris accepted the award, presented April 10 by Oklahoma’s Secretary of State Chris Benge on behalf of Governor Mary Fallin during the 31st Annual Oklahoma World Trade Conference at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Tulsa at Warren Place.

During his acceptance speech, Mr. Morris stated that he had visited every continent except Antarctica in the course of company business. To date, Advantage Controls has made sales to companies in 52 foreign countries.

The export award was created to recognize the achievements of small- to medium-sized companies that have successfully entered the worldwide marketplace.

“The international market is an important part of Advantage Controls overall business,” Morris said. “The International market represents over 10% of our annual revenue. Our products are world class, helping to make us competitive in any environment.

Our products allow users to consume far less water for their processes than they would without them. As the world continues to realize the value of water, our products will continue to gain acceptance throughout the planet”.

Advantage Controls manufacturers controls, pumps, systems and accessories for industrial water treatment. The company was founded in 1994, originally located in 1100 sq. ft. of rented space in downtown Muskogee. Starting with three employees, they have grown to over 100 employees, and currently own over 50,000 sq. ft. of “state of the art” manufacturing, warehouse and office space in the Muskogee Industrial Park.

The company has 10 sales offices located throughout the United States. International sales primarily are made through distributors. Senior VP, Chris Morris travels throughout the world setting up distributors, training and making sales calls. His efforts have resulted in sales in over 50 foreign countries, and on every continent except Antarctica.
