CENTENNIAL, CO - November 9, 2010. The Colorado International Trade Office, a division of Colorado's Office of Economic Development and International Trade, announced Friday that Chronicle Graphics is one of fifteen companies to receive its annual Colorado Export Development Grant (CEDG). Chronicle Graphics, which has been working with a partner in Japan to translate and distribute its OnePager Pro and OnePager Express project presentation software, received the award based on the products' export-readiness and their potential for creating new jobs in Colorado.
"We are excited to have received this grant, and are appreciative of the ITO's interest in furthering international business opportunities for the State of Colorado," said Safford Black, Chronicle Graphics' Chief Operating Officer, who has been leading the company's efforts in Japan. "Our OnePager products have shown tremendous potential in the Japanese market, and this grant will allow us to invest in more face-to-face activities like tradeshows, working sessions, and meetings with prospects. We are thrilled that the ITO has recognized our progress to date and is giving us this opportunity to expand our international presence."
Outside of North America, Chronicle Graphics' software already has been adopted in South Africa, France, The Netherlands, and Brazil. The company's foray into Japan marks its first formal distribution program in the Asia-Pacific region.
