Copernicus reveals plans for USA expansion

Press Release: January 05, 2010

Opening in the USA will add a new dimension to our ability to provide our clients with new business opportunities and sources for a whole variety of products and services for the UK and other European, Asian and Middle East markets where we are represented

Manchester, England 17.12.09 Manchester based Copernicus Consulting, a strategic planning consultancy with a rapidly expanding international presence, is to recruit associate consultants as Business Evangelists to create new international trade opportunities for US companies in the various markets where Copernicus are represented, and to indentify potential trading partnerships within the US for international clients.

"This was a natural progression for the business after our success in the UK, elsewhere in Europe and the opening of our office in China. We have already created a platform across the UK, Scandinavia, The Netherlands and Germany which has opened a network of opportunities for our clients. This first phase of expansion into Southern Europe has already created new possibilities that we have been able to generate for our clients in respect of international trade explained Colin Fell, Group Managing Director.

Already we have had approaches from interested parties which may lead to our services being available in France, Portugal and Italy in 2nd quarter 2010, along with enquiries from government bodies in North Africa and UAE to explore how we can best assist them in developing or facilitating international growth in selective target markets. This in itself is a fantastic endorsement of the growing strength of the Copernicus brand and is fair recognition of the quality of the individual consultants carrying out the tasks and projects on behalf of our clients.

The initial response to the range of Copernicus services being introduced to connect international businesses, both small enterprises and larger corporations with the US for the first time has been quite staggering.

The "Copernicus Connecting Markets" service opens doors and develops trading relationships between companies in various international markets to their mutual advantage. Once such partnerships are identified and created the unique Copernicus International Key Account Management service offers an extremely cost effective solution to the further development and increased return on investment following a new market entry.


The United States of opportunity
"The operation in the US will mirror the successful model operating in our other markets," said Angela Stretford who leads the Copernicus International Training organisation which complements the main Copernicus business while also operating as a standalone entity. We will focus on the SME sector where we can work directly with business owners and have the greatest financial impact on their business, while also looking to work closely in association with county and state economic development authorities just as we have done previously in Holland (Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency) or in Sweden ( Invest in Sweden) to name but two.

In this way we can add the commercial expertise of Copernicus to the knowledge base and extensive market data of a government organisation to the benefit of our clients, as we fast track their international market entry strategy in the most cost effective manner possible.
With this in mind Copernicus will launch three new domains to highlight the potential for reciprocal business with the US. www.exportfromusa.com, www.exportingtousa.net and www.exporttocanada.net will all be visible in 2010 to coincide with the expansion drive. Copernicus opened in China and Spain earlier this year and has carried out several outsourcing and sourcing projects for UK and EU based companies with great success over the last few months with savings already running into tens of thousands of dollars for clients.

Offices in Turkey and Poland will open by mid-January 2010, Singapore, Dubai and a third, as yet undisclosed office, shortly afterwards. In each instance the language competencies, skills and local business knowledge are developed within the business for the benefit of Copernicus clients.
