Concord Supply, founded in 1991 and located in San Antonio, TX, is a manufacturer of packaging material, special laminations and extrusions. Some of Concord Supply products applications are metal and wood packaging, construction and agriculture.
The International Trade Center Senior International Business Advisor Alberto Rodriguez-Baez started assisting Concord Supply in 2013. Some of the services provided to the company’s staff were international market research, trade advising and international business development training assistance. The most critical service provided was the international steel market analysis, identification of best markets to export Concord Supply’s products and the identification of potential clients in the steel industry in specific markets abroad.
As a result, Concord Supply is poised to expand its presence to new markets in the Middle East, Europe and Australia. “The market research prepared for us by the International Trade Center was very informative and provided comprehensive and detailed information regarding potential customers abroad that we are looking to approach and do business with. We are already in the process of penetrating global markets with this information,” said Victor Quiñones, Concord Supply’s Owner and President. “The information is so relevant and useful that we are planning on hiring staff to act on it,” Quiñones added.
Besides providing international trade advising, Rodriguez-Baez has been instrumental in connecting Concord Supply with other trade assistance agencies in the region and other departments within UTSA’s Institute for Economic Development. As a result of this exposure, Concord Supply was visited this year by US Trade Representative Ambassador Michael Froman, who visited San Antonio to see first-hand the city’s export-related economic development efforts.
