Company representatives Joe Street and Pete Savage recently traveled to Bogota, Colombia, South America for a week-long trip focused on generating further international business relationships.
The trip, that ran from November 28-December 5 and was put together by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, involved several companies from across the state of Virginia interested in increasing international sales. Joe and Pete met with 18 different potential customers and vendors throughout the week with hopes of building relationships that will eventually lead to business in Colombia. Pete Savage said “going to Colombia was very beneficial to the company because it gave us a layout of the land and presented us opportunity to gain perspective on the mining industry there. We got an idea of potential end users that we can sell our products to and also partners and/or distributors that we can do business with in the future. Overall, it was a very busy but worthwhile trip that should translate into some new opportunity for West River.”
