Charles Gillinder, president of Gillinder Glass, and Fred Harding, chief financial officer, are pictured accepting the New York State Small Business Exporter of the Year award on behalf of Gillinder Glass by the New York Small Business Development Center at its annual awards ceremony in Lake George, N.Y. “This award shows that people who live and work in Port Jervis, especially our employees, can produce world-class products and services that compete successfully in global markets,” Gillinder said. Gillinder Glass directly exports 20 percent of what the company manufactures to 26 countries and every continent in the world, and expects to significantly increase exports in the coming years. The glass manufacturer is based in Port Jervis and specializes in custom-molded, hand-pressed, clear and colored glass as well as optical prism processing and engineering. For more information visit
