Executives at Osagian Canoes of Lebanon, have taken the leap, thanks to a workshop at the Commerce Department. Osagian’s opened a small factory in Denmark, and exports are on pace to make up 15% of sales this year. NewsFactor.com reports the Commerce Department and the SBA, along with the Export-Import Bank, are making a big push to help small and midsize firms dramatically increase exports.
