"I want to thank all of the people involved, from the Interim Port Director, Jeffrey Baldwin and Mrs. Price to the Supervisors, the Import Specialists and the Customs Inspectors for what they do every day in protecting the US, its Brand owners and citizens from these illegal products. This is a great example of cooperation between the Government and Industry in fighting a foreign threat to US business and consumers" said ISC President & CEO, Bill Duffy in presenting the award.
