Since its creation in 2006, Export-net has helped over 50 SMEs in Spain, Italy and the UK export their products and services to France. We’ve worked in a diverse number of sectors, from high-tech to manufacturing industries, as well as consumer goods, finding distributors, importers, resellers, agents and end-users.
"After several years of receiving interested incoming calls from the French market but no actual purchase order, we decided we needed to find a local partner to distribute our products. We hired Export-net to help us find such a partner in France. Thanks to their know-how on market actors and cultural differences, they managed to bridge the gap between our approach and the needs of the French and convince local partners of the added value of our product. Today our purchase orders coming from France build up to € 1,5 million each year, on a global turnover of € 6 million".
"Export-net helped us kick-off our international expansion and gain precious time in the first year of the export project. During a fruitful business trip organised by Etienne, we met up with several very qualified contacts. Once the business trip was over, Etienne took care of the follow-up and we ended up contracting a few months later with a distributor, which has since become our sole partner in France. Export-net understands the specific needs of SMEs: no extravagant entry fees, flexible contract relations and a cost-efficient ROI-oriented approach".
"Export-net is a long lasting partner for our consulting agency, helping us find relevant contacts in France for our SME clients who have little or no experience in exporting goods. Export-net is a great gateway to the French market."
"In the past, we had worked with other export consulting firms who organised trade-missions in France, but they lacked follow-up assistance and we failed to convert interesting contacts made during the missions. Working with Export-net, we get a much better service on the long term. Two years after the trade mission in France organised by Export-net, Etienne and his team keep following-up with people we met, and the purchase orders are still coming in!"
"As a small structure, we do not have an export service in office. For us, Export-net is the ideal solution: Etienne and his team work as our local export department a few hours each month for a very cost-effective relationship: low price and efficient high-yield results."
