From Our Clients

We did not pursue exports. We very much shied away from it until the Global Trade Center helped us with concerns, hooked us up with the financing, with people who could assist us harmonizing codes. Exports now account for 20 percent of sales.


We Shorten the Distance Between You and the World.

Since 1999, Van Andel Global Trade Center has been helping Michigan businesses succeed globally. Whether you are thinking about opening a new market, figuring out customs compliance and international regulations, or looking for overseas suppliers to compliment your global supply chain, VAGTC can help.

“It is truly great having a resource in West Michigan where I can send staff to receive training on import and export control regulations close to home.“

- Rick Disbrow, Van Andel Institute


“In a very short time after becoming members, we have been so impressed with the resources, tools and guidance that VAGTC has provided Uncle Goose.  The team of professionals has facilitated our strategy to open new export markets and have provided relevant knowledge and expertise where we had gaps.”  

- Kerri Orders, Uncle Goose
