Machinery, Materials & Technology (M3T)

Welcome to the website of the U.S. Commercial Service’s Machinery, Materials & Technology (M3T) Team for U.S. manufacturers who want to export. 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. To maintain this important sector of the U.S. economy, the U.S. Commercial Service provides assistance to increase the industry’s competitiveness by providing insight and research on foreign markets, programs to help U.S. firms enter new markets and services to help them find qualified business partners.
