What Our Members Say

“Maine International Trade Center went out of their way to support our research gathering initiatives, making it possible for us to make informed decisions for our business. Their support is especially important to us, being a startup, but the opportunity to have knowledgeable help readily available should be taken advantage of by any and all Maine companies, regardless of size. The MITC staff are professional, responsive, and friendly to work with, and I would go on record as highly recommending their services.”
