I have been working with Canadian companies looking to expand into the U.S. market for over 11 years. Many of the companies I work with are manufacturers or warehouse/distribution operations in the Southern Ontario area. They tend to be small to medium size companies that have some percentage of U.S. sales and/or are purchasing U.S. based raw materials.
