Considering that over 90% of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States, it makes sense for businesses of all sizes to explore opportunities in overseas markets. Export sales can increase your company’s revenue and potentially help you in the event that U.S. domestic sales slow. Also, exports offer an excellent chance to get your products noticed in a market with fewer local and regional competitors.


Don’t let the tiny landmass fool you. Japan is huge in terms of people and purchasing power. As a country, Japan’s GDP is behind that of the United States and China but with a population of over 30 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan economy in the world. And better still, Japanese consumers have long loved American-made products because they are valued for their quality, reputation and style.

Our bilingual team based in Portland, Oregon handles all of the details to make your international sales possible. Our team in Japan has offices in Tokyo, Okinawa, Sapporo and Toyama giving us reach to all parts of the country.  And most importantly, we help you tell your story so Japanese consumers get to know what makes your company and its products special.
