From the time Pexim stared exporting in 2010, their sales have grown 500%. “SUSTA provides us with information of upcoming shows and events, while subsidizing our efforts and providing us with the necessary tools to exhibit our products and create new client relationships.”
Pexim, Inc. is a small business located in Duluth, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Incorporated in 2010, Pexim has quickly grown into a well-recognized exporter of poultry, canned goods and other grocery items. In just five years, they expanded beyond the Atlanta metro area to the Middle East, West Africa, Japan, and The Philippines. Pexim’s export success was recognized recently by Georgia Governor Nathan Deal who awarded them the G.L.O.B.E. (Georgia Launching Opportunities by Exporting) Award.
“Through SUSTA, we have been able to expand to markets we may otherwise have missed out on. SUSTA connects buyers and sellers at different shows and in different places, which enables us to achieve great exposure in many markets. Our business continues to grow and our product line continues to expand. Pexim’s projected sales for the current year are expected to meet or exceed $10 million by year’s end,” said a company representative.
