Eric Kleinsorge, CEO, and Brooke Edwards, Project Director, with GSLI speak with over 130 Companies during the Italian Trade Agency webinar

Global Site Location Industries (GSLI), a leading site selection and economic development consulting firm, are pleased to announce that CEO Eric Kleinsorge and Project Director Brooke Edwards were featured speakers at the Italian Trade Agency’s Webinar “U.S. Market Opportunities” on November 15. The event was created to help Italian companies open in the U.S. market through business development and incentive focuses. Kleinsorge and Edwards introduced the Italian business leaders to the U.S. economic development market, and the site location process necessary to effectively expand operations into the United States.

“Collaborating with GLSI has been a very enriching experience for us and for all the Italian companies that attend the webinar,” said Salvatore Grignano, Marketing and Promotion Officer in the Houston office of the Italian Trade Agency. “Their level of knowledge and experience in the sector allowed us to inform, and educate these companies, on what are the right steps to take in order to find the right solution for their expansion plans into the US. ITA is proud to collaborate with GLSI and we look forward to strengthening this relationship in the future.”

ITA promoted the webinar to their network and had over 130 companies registered for the call. We had the following Italian manufacturing industries represented: woodworking, plastic, jewelry, aerospace, and glassware. The collaboration between ITA and GSLI is to aid their network with resources and information to help Italian manufacturers succeed in the United States. 

“The Italian Trade Agency is a forward-thinking commerce commission that’s truly dedicated to growing Italian businesses,” said Eric Kleinsorge, CEO of GSLI. “The attendees are excited to expand into the American market, including building new factories and distribution centers in the U.S. As a group, they’re embracing massive growth and looking toward increasing their international presence. I’m excited to work directly with these Italian business leaders to help grow their companies and both the U.S. and Italian economies.” The companies involved would benefit greatly from the Italian Trade Agency Webinar.
