Award recognizes MGS export expertise
MGS, LLC has been named SC Exporter of the Year, as part of the 2022 South Carolina National Small Business Week Awards.
The core business of the Columbia, SC-based company is supplying defense and security equipment and services for international government and commercial sector where permitted. A minority-owned business, MGS assists government clients in the acquisition of military, security and law-enforcement equipment and services.
MGS CEO Robert G. Suber expressed appreciation for the recognition. “We are extremely grateful for this high honor, and the assistance the SBA has so often provided.” Suber praised his team, saying their work has been instrumental in making the company successful. “Support from MGS’ manufacturing and supply partners is world class,” he added.
The company has expanded in the UK as MGS International Ltd., and last year qualified for a substantial line of credit through the U.S. Small Business Administration and South Carolina Small Business Center, further enhancing the company’s capabilities and services.
After more than two decades in the business, MGS has evolved into a multimillion-dollar international operation, with clients in more than 50 countries, including U.S. government and state agencies.
