In November, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Penny Priztker appointed Erik Nilsson, Shipping Manager for Mascoat, to the Houston District Export Council. The HDEC helps foster U.S. economic growth and create American jobs by stimulating and facilitating the export of goods and services from companies located in Southeast Texas.

Nilsson has been instrumental in streamlining Mascoat’s international shipping procedures for not only the company’s benefit, but also the customers’. As a result, his responsibilities on the council are to be a resource to companies looking to export their goods outside of the USA, using Mascoat’s shipping methods as a template.
