New Exports Help “Lift-Off Pipe” Overcome Economic Challenges
2020 Success Story
Spurred on by the challenges of 2020, pipe support and corrosion mitigation provider Lift-Off Pipe of Louisiana worked with Charlotte Conerly of U.S. Commercial Service (CS) New Orleans to overcome adversity by exploring international markets.
Throughout 2020, the company participated in educational webinars, received export counseling and website globalization help, and reviewed in-depth market research to help them find other end-uses beyond their traditional oil & gas industry. The research revealed that France was a very good market for the product. Charlotte connected the company with her colleagues in CS France and a potential partner, during which Lift-Off Pipe conducted a video sales presentation.
The French company made an initial purchase worth over $8,000 just four months after Lift-Off Pipe started the research with Charlotte.
