We can help you establish a foothold, then work with you as you "roll out" your product or service.

From its 20,000 sq. ft. facility in Ferndale, Washington, International Market Access, Inc. provides more than 100 Canadian exporters and importers with USA Marketing Support Services, including USA business identity, warehousing, distribution, order fulfillment (pick and pack), tradeshow logistics support, return/repair, and Foreign-Trade Zone consulting services.

  • Increase Marketing Productivity : By delegating the "back-end" of their business to IMA, our clients increase their USA marketing productivity by up to 20% or more.
  • Improve Prospect Response: A U.S. office will increase sales response, enhance your credibility, and generate confidence.
  • Increase Sales: By responding to orders and inquiries from your U.S. office you can reduce response time, significantly increasing your selling effectiveness.
  • Save Time: We know who you have to talk to, what you have to do, what steps you must take to do business in the U.S. We can save you many hours of legwork.
  • Fast, Easy Startup: With IMA, you literally have an instant office and staff in the U.S., so you can begin operations immediately.
  • Maintain Control: Our offices are 15 minutes from the border, allowing you to stay in close contact and maintain tight control over U.S. operations.
  • Minimize Taxes: U.S. federal and state taxes may be avoided or reduced by contracting with IMA instead of establishing an independent office.
  • Reduce Effect of Exchange Rates: Lower cost U.S. services can be paid with dollars generated by U.S. sales, thus eliminating the exchange rate penalty.
