“It is gratifying to know how well Graham-Field’s USA-manufactured medical equipment is respected throughout the world, as that will continue to fuel our international sales growth,” Parker remarks.

“Promoting Georgia in strategic international markets is essential to keep Georgia competitive, and we’re here to help Georgia companies access those markets … In Georgia, we know companies that sell overseas create twice as many jobs as those only selling in the U.S. market. They grow an average of 18 percent faster, and their workforce is typically 10 to 15 percent more productive. International sales volume also helps lower overall production costs and leads to increased profitability,” says GDEcD (Georgia Department of Economic Development) Commissioner Chris Carr.
