"We are really pleased with the Expo Manufactura opportunity through A3's grant program. At the end of 2023, we hired a second regional sales manager (Alejandro) for northern Mexico. Our two regional sales managers (Giovanni and Alejandro) worked hard and generated over 250 sales leads at the show! We have some distribution and are looking for more, so being able to work with the distributors on these leads is extremely valuable for us to build our sales in Mexico"
