Exporting Services

Nearly 95% of global consumers and 84% of spending power is found outside the U.S. making exporting extremely appealing for business growth. But many small and medium-sized manufacturers are too busy running day-to-day operations to consider if and how they could export their products. ExporTech helps your company navigate export growth, develop an export plan and connects you to a range of experts in sales and distribution channels, market intelligence, financing and payment, logistics, legal and compliance. The MEP National Network co-created ExporTech with the U.S. Commercial Service of the Department of Commerce to give you the resources you need to expand to foreign markets.

ExporTech was a powerful process to get our company focused on growth through exporting. Thanks to the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance, we skipped years of mistakes and that is invaluable to our future business.

—Rob Nock, President and CEO, Preston Eastin
