The Pella Chronicle

---- — Vermeer President and CEO Mary Andringa has returned home from the U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker’s trade mission to Mexico. Andringa joined the Commerce Secretary and representatives from 17 U.S. companies looking to expand partnerships and develop effective strategies for accessing and doing business in the Mexican market.

The focus of the trade mission was to promote U.S. exports to Mexico by helping export-ready U.S. companies launch or increase their business in a number of key industry sectors including advanced manufacturing.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker said, “The 17 companies who joined me on this important mission represent the best of American business.”

Andringa, said the trip was a strong affirmation of the opportunities for Vermeer. “With reforms in Mexico around telecommunications, affordable energy and business growth, coupled with the positive attitude of administration and the larger community, there seems to be very positive opportunities for Vermeer and U.S. business in Mexico.”
