Developed in partnership with sponsors SYSPRO Canada and Grant Thornton LLP, Export Insights highlights data from a national survey of nearly 350 Canadian industrial executives. The report is augmented by a roundtable discussion among Canadian exporters.
“We feel strongly that Canadian manufacturers have limitless opportunity to develop successful expansion strategies to establish themselves as sustainable global market leaders,” said Dale Kehler, Vice President – Product Services at SYSPRO Canada. “But determining the best approach to an expansion strategy has become a more complex and challenging choice.”
The survey benchmarks manufacturers’ current exporting businesses and illuminates their plans for growth in overseas markets.
“This year’s report and roundtable highlights the resiliency and tenacity of Canadian exporting firms,” said Michael Ouellette, editor of CanadianManufacturing.com and moderator of the roundtable discussion.
“We identify some of the common risks a new exporter will face, regardless of where they plan to export, as well as some of the proven methods of mitigating those risks. For Canadian companies, exporting is a vital source of revenue growth. This study demonstrates strategies that new exporters can easily adopt.”
