Topic: Exporting Canadian Manufactured Products: Fabrication Considerations and Business Strategies for Success
Abstract: Canadian manufacturers have an opportunity to significantly increase their revenue by pursuing business internationally. With a total population of over 36 million, Canada is naturally a small percentage of the global marketplace. The USA market is often a good and close stepping stone, but when entering markets outside North America, there are many business strategies and factors to consider for fabricated products and equipment. Considering the current 2018 trade disputes with Canada and USA, it is crucially important to pursue additional markets to ensure market diversification.
This presentation will touch on tips to consider when sending your products overseas, such as fabrication considerations, shipping/packaging, logistics/customs, dealing with metric versus imperial measurements, local tools availably, after market/warranty support, local codes and standards awareness, and international business success strategies.
The target audience will business owners/managers looking to expand sales of their products internationally. Fabrication managers will get insights on what to consider when preparing their products/equipment for international markets.
