Plymouth, MA, December 5, 2017. Flexo Concepts announced that it has been awarded funding for the fourth time through the Massachusetts State Trade Expansion Program (“STEP”) to support its export activities. The company has sold abroad since 1990 and maintains a thriving overseas presence which includes sales offices in Spain and Taiwan.
Flexo Concepts will use the most recent $12,000 grant to help pay for its exhibition at the FEFCO corrugated technical seminar this past October in Vienna. The grant will also be used to help fund the company’s exhibition at the China International Battery Fair (CIBF) in Shenzhen next May. At CIBF, Flexo Concepts will promote its TruPoint Orange® doctor blade in the fast-growing Asian lithium ion battery market. In this application, Orange is used to apply the coating of the lithium ion battery separator film to facilitate charging and discharging of the battery while preventing short-circuiting.
The Massachusetts State Trade Expansion Program is a collaboration between the Massachusetts Office of International Trade and Investment, the Massachusetts Small Business Development Center Network and the Massachusetts Export Center. Through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, STEP grant funding (up to $12,000 for 2017-2018) is awarded to eligible businesses in Massachusetts to increase export sales.
