On May 16, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented LeChat Nail Care Products with the President’s “E” Award for Export Service at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. LeChat was one of 123 companies to receive the “E” Award for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

Founded by Newton Luu in 1993, LeChat has grown from a one-person company, with Luu mixing products in a garage and selling them door to door to salons, to a sizeable manufacturer and supplier with over 200 gel-polishes and color-matching nail lacquers, spa products, and specialty nail tools. The award recognized LeChat for demonstrating a sustained increase in export sales over a four-year period.

“At LeChat, we realize that one of our greatest markets for growth is international export sales. While we continue to develop our domestic partnerships, we are building a regulatory compliance group for quicker and seamless approvals around the world,” Luu explained at the E-Award ceremony. “We are studying ways to become more productive and determining how to manage our channels of distribution to strengthen our brand worldwide. We are proud to be a U.S. manufacturer that exports our products to over 40 countries.
