3/24/15 – Buyers overseas love Made in the USA and they’re willing to pay for the quality parts and products your employees produce.  With the help of US Department of Commerce’s Export Assistance Center, many small and mid-sized manufacturers can develop a new revenue stream for their business selling their products outside the country.

Listen to Ryan Hollowell, and Katie Carney, and Christopher Almonte discuss the financing programs and logistics support available to all US manufacturers to help move your products out of the starting gate and into the hands customers overseas.  If you’re not exporting your products, you are missing a rich and profitable revenue stream.

Currently Ryan is a Senior International Trade Specialist with the U.S. Department of Commerce in the Northern New Jersey Office, as well as the co-lead for the Department’s Renewable Energy Team.  Prior to joining the Northern New Jersey Office, Ryan served as the Director for International Business Development for Lumi•Solair, a New York City based grid-free renewable energy solutions provider.
