Fredericton, NB (Date should be inserted here-find on blog): Fredericton-headquartered Bulletproof, an IT Services provider, has been named Foreign-Owned Exporter at the New Brunswick Export Awards Gala that took place last week in Moncton at Casino New Brunswick. The Foreign-Owned Export Award recognizes foreign-owned companies who are successfully exporting New Brunswick products and/or services. 

The majority of Bulletproof’s growth can be attributed to the Company’s success in exporting its services across Canada and into the US. This was propelled by Bulletproof’s acquisition by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) in 2016; making the homegrown Atlantic Canadian business a foreign-owned company. 

“We’re proud to accept the 2018 Foreign-Owned Export award. It’s great to be recognized by the local community and partners that Bulletproof has developed strong relationships and roots with for the past 17 years in New Brunswick” says Bulletproof Founder and CEO, Steve Burns. “With only 2 years under our belt in the US market, we’re gaining significant ground across all 50 states and happy to see such strong results in a short period. This award presents a great opportunity for our teams to celebrate a win, recognize all the progress we’ve made as a company and our impact on both a local & global scale as an exporter.”

Bulletproof was also a finalist in the “Innovative Exporter of the Year” and “Exporter of the Year – over $5 million in export sales” categories. Now in their 52nd year, the Awards were hosted by Opportunities NB in partnership with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). Winners are selected by a judging panel consisting of business experts from academia and the private sector. Judges are chosen based on their knowledge of the New Brunswick business community and understanding of international trade.
