Export to the US

Internationalization – an opportunity for small and medium-sized businesses

Now as ever, exports are the strongest growth factor in the German economy. Many German companies export over 50% of their goods and services. The US continues to be one of its most important trading partners. In the course of globalization there are special challenges, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses, when it comes to tapping this potential efficiently over the long term. In order to take advantage of opportunities while avoiding risks, a structured approach designed for maximum efficiency is required.

Traditionally, initial business relationships are developed overseas through trade show contacts, and an initial distributor is set up.Such early transactions can result in sustainable impulses for long-term overseas engagement.

Your challenges:
- Clear internationalization strategy aligned directed to the US market.
- Cultural knowledge in dealing with American businesspeople.
- Meeting product requirements.
- High investment costs to independently establish a US subsidiary.

What we can do for you:
- Specific product and industry market analysis as a basis for the strategic planning of your market entry.
- Product tests and suggestions for adaptation to US standards.
- Complete professional business infrastructure for your US company.
- Professional personnel.
- Market proximity and fast reaction time.
- Cost savings.

Your own US company is mandatory

Quick reaction times and proximity to customers and suppliers are among the fundamental requirements for survival in the US.Customer and cooperation partners, in particular, expect personnel who speak English and are familiar with American culture and who can be reached locally in the US. Technical service must be at the customer's site within 24 hours, if needed, and logistics departments must be set up to ship spare parts for delivery the next day.

Experiences of companies which do business in the US have shown that one form of entry into the US market has proven to be particularly successful: a fully owned local representative. Americans are prepared to invest in high-quality products only if the foreign company has shown it is serious about long-term market engagement with its own subsidiary.
