The World Trade Center Institute Winner of Maryland's 2011 International Business Leadership Award
Marlin Steel Wire Products
Today, international trade in Maryland supports nearly 800,000 jobs - more than 25% of our workforce. But with only 3% of Maryland companies actively exporting, we have significant room to grow.
More of our companies can be like Marlin Steel Wire Products here in Baltimore. They make wire baskets and fabricated metal items, and they project that by 2014 they will sell half their products in other countries.
If we continue to find ways to work together across sectors - business, government, education, non-profits - we are better positioned than any other state to make this new economy ours.
