Find Success in Canada and Mexico

Both Canada and Mexico offer U.S. businesses tremendous opportunity for international success. Canada is Wisconsin’s largest export market with the total bilateral trade valued at $12 billion. Mexico is Wisconsin’s second largest trading partner with more than $2 billion in exports. Close proximity to the U.S. and a growing middle class make Mexico a key market for companies looking to build a strong global presence, while Canada’s stable economic performance, similar customer base, and a solid integrated supply chain provide excellent business opportunities for Wisconsin exporters with innovative product and service solutions.

Learn how Wisconsin-based Gilman Precision is targeting growth opportunities in optimum markets like Canada and Mexico.

How to Navigate the Canadian Marketplace
