Kansas: Central to Your Success

Diversify your markets and expand your sales by increasing your exports!  Whether you are just starting to explore selling outside of the U.S. or are looking for new markets, the international team at Commerce has the tools and experience to get you to your goals faster and with fewer obstacles.  International trade show support, state-led trade missions, or an expanded virtual presence on the internet are just some of the ways we can help improve your bottom line.  Join the many other Kansas companies that we work with on a regular basis and contact us today to get started!

The state’s central location, plentiful transportation options and intermodal services make it the first choice among businesses wanting to expand or relocate.  That also goes for international companies looking to find a home among the many successful foreign invested ventures already located here.  With its distribution dominance, manufacturing resources and modern energy platforms, Kansas continues to re-invest in key infrastructure such as airports, railroads, highways and broadband, and keeps business moving forward.
