The M3T Team's in-depth industry expertise seeks to provide up-to-date export assistance and value-added services for the exports of industrial machinery and materials in the chemicals, plastics, composites, paper/pulp, material handling, metal-working and machine tools sectors. Since exports boost the economy and greatly increase a company’s profitability, many small and medium-sized manufacturers are now exploring opportunities to increase market share outside of the U.S. The manufacturing sector in the United States has been a cornerstone of our economy for decades.
