Instead of loading your Made in the USA or Made in CA products on cargo ships bound for countries eager to buy high quality goods, too many manufacturers are leaving the rewards of global trade to competitors. If you are a manufacturer seeking to maximize your business growth and improve your bottom line, you might consider exporting. We know it can be an overwhelming task, but CMTC is here to assist in the following areas:
Exportable products include, but are not limited to:
The only national program that helps individual companies develop an export plan!
The ExporTech™ Program fee is $5,000, offered to select qualified manufacturers for $3250. The initial required commitment fee to participate is $750. A scholarship of $2500 is available with the obligation that scholarship recipients “pay it forward” by providing a $2500 scholarship if — within one year after implementing the export growth plan — top-line export sales have increased by $50,000 or more.
Enrollment per program date is limited to 8 companies. Therefore, the commitment to fully participate is required and essential to the program success for you and for your peer participants.

(April 23, 2019) “My recent success is we received our EU certification! It took three years in the planning and efforts but all worth it. The best part is that we were approved just in time to use our first certificate to ship product to Italy for the Zoomark show in 2 weeks. It couldn’t have worked out better. I have learned so much in the last three years and know that ExporTech™ was an integral part of our foundation. I was reviewing our ExporTech™ presentation and I am happy to report we have accomplished what we listed on that plan from 2017!”
Co-Owner Breann Shook and Sharla Marocchi completed ExporTech™ O.C. (Irvine) in August 2016. Since implementing their export growth plan, Grandma Lucy’s has secured the certifications needed to export their premium pet food products in multiple global markets. Relatively new to exporting at the time, export sales now represent about 20% of sales – and continue to grow.
