By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock business is honored by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.  On Friday she presented the Award for Corporate Excellence to a subsidiary of Plains Cotton Cooperative Association.

"Our winner in the small-to-medium size enterprise category is Denimatrix – Denimatrix of Lubbock, Texas, and for its work in Guatemala," Clinton said in the Benjamin Franklin Diplomatic Reception Room. 

PCCA is comprised of farmers in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.  In 2009 it started Denimatrix with a facility in Guatemala City, Guatemala. 

After accepting the award from Secretary Clinton, PCCA President and CEO Wally Darneille said, "We believe that social responsibility and environmental stewardship are really critical to a company's success." 

The Award For Corporate Excellence recognizes U.S. businesses for being good corporate citizens abroad.  The other winners of the 2010 ACE are Mars Incorporated, and Cisco Systems.
