The Challenge

Power Technology, Inc. was a small laser manufacturer that only exported to a couple of companies. Leadership felt the company needed a purposeful, strategic plan to export their products to more countries, and, more importantly, to the right countries. For help they turned to AMS, part of the MEP National Network™.
ExporTech provided us a means to develop a practical and mature business plan that was peer-reviewed. This allowed us to fill any gaps in the plan.
— Walter Burgess, Co-CEO Sales & Engineering
