With more than 95 percent of the world’s consumers outside the United States, the NMMA’s Export Development Program is designed to help members grow their export business. The association has partnered with the U.S. Department of Commerce to help manufacturers better home in on certain markets.

Companies that export are more profitable, pay higher wages and are better able to navigate seasonal and domestic downturns, the NMMA said in a statement.
