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.

Georgia companies operating across all industries are being presented with an export seminar that will cover a wide range of international trade finance topics from basic to advanced. This seminar provides small and medium-sized businesses the opportunity to gain knowledge necessary to determine options available for financing their export businesses, and how to best utilize programs and services offered by the Export-Import Bank of the United States; the U.S. Small Business Administration; and international business divisions of banks. This seminar will detail the products, programs and services available to mitigate risks associated with export transactions (i.e. international letters of credit; documentary collections; foreign currency exchange/hedging; working capital loans; foreign receivables insurance; & guaranteed term financing). This program is coordinated by the U.S. Commercial Service office in Atlanta that also provides export trade finance counseling for small and medium-sized businesses.
