FARGO-Avitus Group is rolling out a new service to help North Dakota and all United States businesses seamlessly and successfully break into the European market. As of April 1st, any business in the United States can contact Avitus Group’s European office about expanding overseas.

It is Avitus Group’s mission to make sure that the businesses’ prosperity in a new, international market is long- term. “For the business owner, this is a smart route to success in Europe.

If your company is interested in doing business in Europe, here’s how it works; Our experienced staff, located in the Netherlands, will create your European presence, recruit the right people to make sure your business is successful and establish an international office for your European branch of the business. From there, the professionals at our Avitus Europe office can handle all of your needs from bookkeeping to taxes, human resources, sales and marketing services. These essential, yet complex parts of a daily operation become even more complicated in a foreign country. Avitus Group’s European staff is highly trained and knowledgeable about business in all 27 countries in the European Union. Avitus Europe will also pinpoint which countries your business is more likely to thrive in. “Our staff will evaluate and determine the best market entry strategies in Europe for your business. All of our Avitus Europe staff members are fluent in at least four different languages. They truly are the experts you need to launch your business into Europe.” – Kenneth Balster, VP of Marketing, Avitus Group.

“Europe remains to be America’s largest export market and is proven to be a succesful market for US companies. Over the years our team has successfully brought over 150 US companies to the European market.” – Mark de Vries, Sr. Strategic Business Advisor, Avitus Europe.

Avitus Group is also proud to help boost the economy at home by increasing exports overseas. “If we can help United States businesses grow into Europe, that means more production here in the U.S. and more jobs for Americans…and Europe is only the beginning. Plans are in the works for similar services in 14 separate countries like China and Canada. Our footprint is growing and we’re excited.” – Kenneth Balster, VP of Marketing, Avitus Group.

North Dakota Exports:

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, North Dakota’s international exports increased by 33% from 2010 to 2011. In the past decade, the percentage has climbed by more than 300%, despite global economic challenges. Today, North Dakota exports more, per capita, than California. In 2011, North Dakota exports totaled $ 3.4 billion. Avitus Group hopes to help further increase export numbers in North Dakota. The state’s largest market was Canada followed by Mexico, Belgium, Australia and Germany. North Dakota’s largest merchandise export category is machinery followed by oil and gas, agricultural products, food products and transportation equipment. A total of 876 companies exported from North Dakota in 2009 (latest data available.) Of those, 751 (86%) were small and medium-sized enterprises with fewer than 500 employees.

Why Go Global?

If a business is performing well domestically, expansion into an international market may improve profits. Over 95% of the world’s population is outside of the United States. This means companies can spread dependence across a global market and not rely solely on one domestic market. Through exporting, businesses are more likely to weather the storms of economic change, consumer demands and seasonal fluctuations within the domestic economy. Exporting can also increase production capacity and potentially lower per unit costs. Boosting the economy at home is another advantage of expanding into a foreign market. More production in the U.S. means more jobs for Americans.   

Avitus Group is a company known for providing quality service. Corporate headquarters are located in Billings, Montana with additional offices located all across the U.S., including a regional office in North Dakota. We also have a European office. As your business expands, we invite you to use Avitus Group to make your world of administrative hassles easy. Avitus Group handles all of the the back office details so you can focus on growing your business. “We invite you to work with a company that is energized and ready to help you get the best return on your investment.” – Kenneth Balster, VP of Marketing, Avitus Group.
