Echostar Technologies and Imports from Countries
Echostar Technologies, a large technology company, owns a fleet of satellites. Echostar Technologies is the parent company of Dish Network. It supplies Dish Network, the second largest pay TV provider in the United Staes, with satellite access, set-top boxes, and receivers. Echostar actually owns the technology side of Dish Network and has fifteen satellites in orbit, named EchoStar I, II, III, IV, etc. The spin-off of Dish Network occurred as recently as December 2007. EchoStar located in the Denver MSA (click here for Denver’s Market Profile) is the top importer in the area.
They have a 12 month estimated waterborne import value of 140 million dollars of material. With PIERS Prospects we can view the countries that these enormous amounts of imports are coming from. Out of the 140 million dollars worth of equipment, China was the number one country that Echostar Technologies bought from, with an estimated value of almost 79 million dollars. Hong Kong, a city-state of China, accounted for the most other imports at 61 million dollars. It is safe to say that Echostar is getting virtually all of its 140 million dollars worth of imports from China.
