U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker today presented Diamon-Fusion International with the President’s “E” Award for Exports at a ceremony in Washington, DC. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. 

“Diamon-Fusion International has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with Diamon-Fusion International’s innovative surface coating technologies. The company’s steady growth in export sales was also particularly noble. Diamon-Fusion International’s achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs,” said Secretary Pritzker in her congratulatory letter to the company announcing its selection as an award recipient. 

Since 1997, Diamon-Fusion International (DFI) has been making people's lives easier and more beautiful by developing, manufacturing and distributing protective coatings, application machinery and restoration products for architectural and transportation surfaces such as glass, granite, tile, porcelain and quartz. 

Headquartered in Southern California, DFI holds patents and patents-pending worldwide and has a global sales and distribution network spanning North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. 

“When DFI started doing business almost 20 years ago, expanding our product line into a global market had always been a vision of our executive team,” said Adam Zax, CEO of Diamon-Fusion International. “However, we didn’t imagine it bringing us this far. Since establishing our first account in Italy about 15 years ago, DFI has expanded into 20 other countries, spread across 6 continents and exporting now accounts for close to 40% of total sales. Had we found the U.S. Commercial Service back then, instead of just a few years ago, we’d likely be even bigger and broader, or at the very least better streamlined logistically. Our international presence has become key to our global business and we are truly honored to accept the “E” Award.” 

In 1961, President Kennedy signed an executive order reviving the World War II “E” symbol of excellence to honor and provide recognition to America's exporters. Today, Secretary Pritzker honored 123 U.S. companies with the President’s “E” Award for their outstanding work to reduce barriers to foreign markets and to open the door to more trade around the world. 

In 2015, U.S. exports totaled $2.23 trillion, accounting for nearly 13 percent of U.S. GDP. Nationally, exports contributed to the U.S. economy, supporting an estimated 11.5 million jobs. 

U.S. companies are nominated for the “E” Awards through the Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service office network, located within the Department’s International Trade Administration, with offices in 108 U.S. cities and more than 70 countries. Record years of successive export growth and an applicant’s demonstration of an innovative international marketing plan that led to the increase in exports is a significant factor in selecting the winners.

In an effort to help sustain the beauty of the dramatic glass entrance hall of their newly built Dance Center, while reducing maintenance requirements, the Orange County School of Arts (OCSA) has teamed up with Building Beautiful™, a glass restoration and protection division of Diamon-Fusion International, to protect the building’s front entryway with the patented Diamon-Fusion coating. The Dance, Music and Science Centers is part of a 60,000 square-foot Instructional Center, which comes with an inspiring backstory. The school was able to break ground on this $16.2 million structure, through a series of charitable donations from supporters, whose contributions amounted to $13.6 million. 

The ambitious capital undertaking was led by Campaign Co-Chairs Marybelle and S. Paul Musco, Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, and OCSA alumnus Matthew Morrison, as well as Campaign Cabinet Co-Chairs Doug Garn, and Jerry Mandel, Ph.D. Amongst them were lead supporters: Julia and George Argyros, Deborah and Larry Bridges, Missy and Chris Callero / The Callero Family Foundation, Kathy and Gary Conrad, Sally and Dan Fleet / Reuben H. Fleet Foundation, Dr. Martha and James Newkirk, Maureen and Mike Mekjian, Julie and Doug Garn, Cynthia and Martin Howard / Howard CDM, Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family, as well as Marybelle and S. Paul Musco. Their benevolent efforts have literally opened up new doors for bright and talented students, looking to nurture their educational development.

OCSA’s newly built Instructional Center will host a myriad of branches, including: The Arygros Science Center, The Hal & Jeanette Segerstrom Family Music Center, and The Marybelle Musco Dance Center. And that’s just the beginning. Within these major centers are seven state-of-the-art science labs, 14 dance studios, instrumental music and choir rehearsal facilities, 16 music practice rooms, dressing rooms and storage – all capped by the dramatic glass entrance. “On behalf of the OCSA community, I am grateful to the Building Beautiful team for helping protect the beauty of our new Dance, Music and Science Centers for years to come!” Ralph S. Opacic, Ed.D., President & Executive Director.  

The project itself was initiated by Diamon-Fusion International COO, Russell Slaybaugh, who truly believes that buildings like the one at OCSA make a statement about the owners, supporters and tenants, and as such need to always look their best. Building Beautiful™ helps accomplish this by thoroughly cleaning and restoring glass, where necessary, and then applying the Diamon-Fusion coating. This patented coating reduces the need for future maintenance, while simultaneously reducing the associated cost and water consumption thereof. With the increasing use of complex geometries in all variety of architectural design the importance of protecting glass surfaces and reducing the maintenance requirements becomes more pertinent as many times those surfaces can be almost impossible to reach. “Impossible to reach means outrageously expensive to clean,” explained Mr. Slaybaugh. Commercial buildings cleaned and protected by Building Beautiful are more attractive, boosting tenants brand image, lowering vacancy rates, increasing rents and providing a better return for investors and managers. “If you looked at two identical buildings, except one looked dirty and dingy and the other clean and beautiful, which would you lease?” concluded Slaybaugh.  

Of the company’s recent opportunity, DFI Onsite Services Director Carl Christ said, “We are thrilled to donate our time and services to the Orange County School of Arts and all those who helped make it happen. I am confident DFI’s, low-maintenance, protective coating will help preserve the beauty and longevity of the Dance, Music and Science Centers entrance glazing for years to come.” 

About Building Beautiful: Building Beautiful™ is a division of Diamon-Fusion International. Its onsite service program is aimed at making homes and commercial buildings more beautiful and easier to clean, primarily through restoration – cleaning that traditional window cleaners cannot accomplish – and protection services. This includes: windows, glass railings/fencing, shower doors, granite countertops, tile and much more. The Building Beautiful™ initiative also calls for environmental sustainability – promoting a healthier environment by eliminating the use of harsh chemicals and other glass-like surfaces.
