Philadelphia-based Executive Distributors International (EDI) manufactures tactical, ballistic and anti-riot gear. The company has had a long-lasting relationship with the U.S. Commercial Service (CS) and is an experienced exporter that knows what markets it wants to pursue.

Iris Kapo of CS Philadelphia helped the company take advantage of CS’s business matching service, the Gold Key, to pursue international opportunities. CS-arranged meetings with ministries of Interior and Defense resulted in signed partnerships in Paraguay, Panama, and Argentina and a $40,000 sale in Uruguay.
