For the last seven years Tecno Display has been exporting its collection of pre assembled glass display showcases to Canada. Since the requirements for display showcases are similar to the US in Canada it makes much sense for a manufacturer to expand across the border. Canada has a healthy economy and there is a good demand for glass showcases in the different parts of the country. The number of domestic Canadian display showcases companies is limited as are the designs and technical capacities. Based on a substantial volume the costs of exporting to Canada are reasonable and the transportation time short. The institutional market is strong in Canada and the needs for display showcases very diverse. All that is required to expand in Canada is a good established distributor with a solid network of sales persons located in the different provinces of Canada.
