The group leaves Sunday and is scheduled to return Feb. 11.

The delegation will make stops in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore to explore export opportunities in India's expanding industrial sectors. The mission will include senior officials from the Export-Import Bank and the Trade Development Agency.

"Pelican is committed to strengthening its presence in international markets and bringing quality products and service to its customers across the globe. We welcome the opportunity to participate in this business development mission," CEO Lyndon Faulkner said in a statement.

The India business development mission will help build on the exporting success U.S. companies had in 2010 - up 17 percent, compared with the same period in 2009.

The businesses that are joining the trade mission are based in 13 states and more than half of them are small- and medium-size companies.
