I recently started an import/export company. I’m now seeking out manufacturers within the US, who do not export their products but would like to do so. What’s the best way to find these manufacturers? – Kanastaal

One thought that comes to mind is for you to join a network on LinkedIn for example. You can search by keyword/subject and then join a group. From there you can make a general posting or you can research individual members and contact them individually if someone’s company/product appeals to you. Following the advice below, you should try to narrow your product. Once you do that you can start attending industry conferences and events as well as reading the same journals as your target industry and networking.
