The Department of Commerce’s brand new edition of A Basic Guide to Exporting features a case study on Patton Electronics Company, a family-owned, Maryland-based manufacturer of modems, routers and connectivity products for the telecommunications industry.

Patton was founded in 1984 when two brothers and computer science students at the University of Maryland began making and selling electronic widgets. The company has since leveraged EXIM Bank support along with Department of Commerce matchmaking services and trade counseling to grow its international business and build a portfolio of more than a thousand products.

EXIM equipped Patton with the liquidity to expand its global business. The Department of Commerce helped the company penetrate new markets and connect with customers through its international expertise and network of boots on the ground at embassies in attractive markets.
