The Montana Department of Commerce State Trade Expansion Program will support international expansion for two Missoula Made in Montana members. As efforts ramp up to increase international exports, grant funds from the U.S. Small Business Administration will support Diversified Plastics and Sunburst Sensors in these efforts.
“We’ve done a lot of work as it relates to building the capacity of our small business community, said Lozar. “Through this particular program, we’ve had the opportunity over the last few years to broker relationships with our Montana exporters and get them connected to the industries that make sense for their market and service.”
In Missoula, those industries include Diversified Plastics, which fabricates plastic products that meet OEM factory standards. The company recently exhibited in Singapore and is pushing to expand into the Asian market.
Sunburst Sensors, also in Missoula, designs and manufactures instruments that measure inorganic carbons in marine and freshwater bodies. The firm was connected recently through the trade program with potential customers in Mexico, Panama, Chile, Canada and France.
