Virginia Authority Taps Inovex for Participation in State Export Promotion Program

The Division of International Trade of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP), a state authority created to promote economic expansion within the Commonwealth of Virginia, has selected Inovex Industries, Inc. to participate in its export development program named Accessing International Markets, or AIM. The AIM program provides funding, planning and professional services to select Virginia companies seeking to pursue new export leads.

Inovex currently exports to Afghanistan, Colombia, Kazakhstan, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and a host of other countries, and has recently set its sights on increasing sales of its Ride-On TPS tire sealants to Mexico. “We’re excited to see how this program helps us to obtain a serious foothold in an export market closer to home,” states Andrew McCabe, CFO of Inovex. “We’re optimistic that the support of the Commonwealth in this endeavor will be win-win, since an increase in export volumes should spell the creation of additional jobs in Virginia.”
