Success Stories for Mississippi Businesses
Thomasson Lumber of Philadelphia, a partner on a major railroad project in Ecuador, faced a delay on a pending sale – 120,000 of its railroad ties were held up in Ecuadorian Customs due to an issue with fumigation requirements. Stepping in, the CS Mississippi office collaborated with CS Quito, Ecuador, and worked with the USDA to resolve the issue with Ecuador's plant inspection service. The CS then arranged a conference call with Thomasson Lumber and U.S. Export-Import Bank on trade financing options. As a result, Thomasson Lumber completed an initial sale valued at $7.7 million.
Pharmaceutical Trade Services, Inc. of Ocean Springs wanted to expand
its presence in Asia and touched base with the CS Mississippi office. It
was a good start—CS provided counseling on country-specific export
regulations, finance programs, trade shows, state-led trade missions and
opportunities financed by multilateral development banks. CS Mississippi
and Hong Kong also provided the company with a Gold Key matchmaking
service. As a result, PTSI completed a $200,000 sale to Hong Kong.
