COSTA MESA, Calif., June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (Nasdaq:PMBC). Pacific Mercantile Bank ("PMB") announced that Webber EMI, a PMB Export-Import ("Ex-Im") Department client, was recently presented the U.S. Department of Commerce's prestigious Export Achievement Award for year 2013. This award is given out on an annual basis to a small business based upon the impact significance of the export product, the complexity of the transaction and the overall benefits to the recipient buyer. The PMB Ex-Im Department assisted Webber EMI in crafting an Ex-Im Bank loan, which enabled and facilitated the sale of vehicle emission test systems to the government of India.  These systems will enable the Indian government to monitor emissions of cars, motorcycles, trucks & other vehicles, as currently manufactured in India, and will assist the National government in developing, monitoring and enforcing future air quality regulations for the country.

As a green technology company, Ken Parker, the president and CEO of Webber EMI, stated, "We could not have received this award without the expertise and guidance offered to by us Pete Ramirez and the Export Department of Pacific Mercantile Bank." Fred Laturperisa, head of the Commercial Service for the Inland Empire for the Department of Commerce, further states that, "Pacific Mercantile Bank has been a great partner with the Department of Commerce in promoting the President of the United States' National Export Initiative to double US exports. We are very proud of Webber EMI's achievements and the assistance of their banker, PMB."
