The 2013 Arkansas Governor’s Award for Excellence in Global Trade was given to Hot Springs, Ark.-based Alliance Rubber Co. as a top exporter.

“Exports make up about 9% of our sales,” Bonnie Swayze, president of Alliance Rubber Co., said in a news release. “We export to 28 countries including Peru, where Alliance rubber bands are used to hold together bundles of asparagus.”

Gov. Mike Beebe hosted the fourth-annual luncheon which recognizes exporters in four categories: agriculture, small manufacturer, medium manufacturer and large manufacturer, according to the release.

Alliance received the award in the “medium” category.
