Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D., toured the Kansas City, Kansas headquarters of Schroer Manufacturing Company (“Shor-Line”) on October 15th. Shor-Line is the winner of the 2018 Kansas Governor’s Exporter of the Year Award, which is presented to a single Kansas business each year for excellence in international trade and marketing. Following the tour, state officials and company leaders made remarks. Governor Colyer joined Shor-Line Chairman Richard Donahue, Kansas International Trade Coordinating Council Chairman Dr. Melissa Birch, and company leadership for a tour of Shor-Line and an awards presentation. As a third generation privately held business, Shor-Line’s management team sees international expansion as a very important part of its business plan. Emphasis is placed not only visiting trade partners but also on attending international trade shows to better understand foreign markets and develop new business relationships. Shor-Line has an extensive international distributor network and related operations not only in the UK but also in China. Solid market shares exist in Europe, Australia, Canada and Mexico. In Asia, Shor-Line has long serviced customers in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. New export opportunities continue to develop especially in various Central and South American countries. “We are thrilled to be named Exporter of the Year. This award is a testament to the hard work of everyone at Shor-Line, both overseas and in the Kansas City office. Our grandfather who founded Shor-Line in 1927 and our parents who guided the business for many years would be proud indeed,” said Richard Donahue, Chairman of the Board. The tour of the facility took place at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15th. The awards presentation was at 11:00 a.m. Shor-Line is located at 511 Osage Avenue, Kansas City, Kansas.
