Thorstein Holt has been chosen as a Missouri District Export Council (MODEC) member with a 4 year term starting 1/1/2022 to help other companies grow their export business.
Export has always been an important part of Holtec’s business since the 1999 inception and it has been increasing every year for the last several years. This has helped generate more jobs in Missouri and contributed to reducing the US trade deficit. Thorstein is excited to start sharing Holtec’s export experience with other local companies to help them grow their export business.
The District Export Councils around the nation work with the U.S. Department of Commerce to support the expansion of export opportunities for U.S. companies and serve as a communication link between the business community and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
A significant portion of the nitrogen generators Holtec Gas Systems is manufacturing is exported. Some years, the export has exceeded 50% and we have customers in 34 countries. In recognition of this, we received an export award in 2021 at the Mid-America Trade Summit where we were recognized as an “Outstanding Exporter Honoree”.
Holtec did also receive the “Global Growth Award” in 2014 from the World Trade Center in St. Louis and the “International Growth Award” in 2015 from Missouri Association of Manufacturers in recognition of our export expansion activities.
UK magazine Manufacturing today heard about Holtec’s role in the nitrogen generator market and our recent $3 million dollar expansion into a new manufacturing facility in St. Charles, MO and asked if they could do a feature on us for an upcoming article.

Holtec will be exhibiting at the upcoming Fabtech exhibition in Mexico City May 2-4. For many years we have been serving the metal fabrication industry with nitrogen generators, mostly to support laser cutting machines with a low cost alternative to bulk nitrogen. However we do also support heat treatment, brazing, and many other applications.
Our local partner in Mexico, Nitrogeno Verde, will be joining us at the booth to assist with providing turnkey solutions to all our customers. We look forward to talking with all our customers. Hope to see you there!
