ExporTech™ is the only national export assistance program that offers a structured, yet customizable, process that guides companies through every aspect of export growth. At the completion of the program, each company will have developed its own international growth plan and accelerated their export sales process.

ExporTech™ was designed specifically for manufacturers who need innovative ways to grow, and see international sales as part of the answer. The program provides executive leaders with a systematic approach for entering or expanding in global markets.
