The Israel-Asia Chamber of Commerce (IACC) has honored Eshed Diam, a global market leader in the procurement, manufacturing and marketing of large diamonds, for its outstanding contribution to expanding Israel’s exports to Asia in 2010. The company received an award of excellence during a ceremony held as part of the annual IACC members meeting earlier this fall.
IACC’s president, Ran Cohen, said in his address that Eshed Diam’s achievements serve as a shining example to other companies regarding the continuous increase in annual diamond exports, as well as in its marketing policies in Asia. In 2010, Eshed Diam was among Israel’s top 30 Israel diamond exporters.
The IACC Award was presented to Eshed Diam founder and owner Avraham Eshed by Shalom Simchon, Israel’s Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, at the Chamber’s annual gathering in the presence of members of the diplomatic corps from a range of Asian countries.
Formally established in 1980, Eshed Diam was a pioneer among Israeli firms in the manufacturing and marketing of large diamonds of five carats and larger. The company employs the most advanced diamond manufacturing technologies, many of which were developed by Sarin Technologies, a world leader in decision making technologies for the diamond manufacturing community. Eshed, who works in close cooperation with his sons Lior and Liran, is a founding board member and one of the owners of Sarin Technologies.
“During the past decades, Eshed Diam has established a significant and loyal client base in Hong Kong, greater China, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand & India” Eshed noted. “These markets are displaying continuous growth and we are glad to be among those companies that have contributed to unlocking these markets for diamonds cut and polished in Israel.”
