ExporTech™ is a corporate management system that provides manufacturing executives and business owners with strategic focus and a structured process through which they create and implement actionable export plans that result in increased sales growth in global markets. To date, 50+ Executive Teams have completed ExporTech™ programs. Most are implementing their export plans and expanding sales in global markets. Six manufacturers have received export awards recognizing their export expansion efforts.
