Exporting and Growth for Small Businesses
Morgan Motors is one of the iconic small businesses of the United Kingdom. The company has been making its classic sports cars since the 1909. Today some 150 employees each year build up to 700 cars, which sell for $40,000 to $100,000. However, Morgan’s niche is so small that it could not survive if it did not export. Today some 70 percent of its production is shipped overseas, primarily to the United States and Europe. Plus, the modern Morgan car, -although looking every bit the British sports car, contains major components that are -imported from foreign manufacturers, such as engines from BMW and components for antilock braking systems from Bosch. For Morgan, exporting and importing represent the very lifeblood of the company.
Morgan is not alone. Many other small businesses have found that exports can drive growth. In another success story, Wadia, a Michigan-based manufacturer of high-end -premium-priced compact disc players, has annual sales of $8 million and gets some 70 to 80 percent of its sales from overseas. About 35 percent comes from Asia, with both Japan and China accounting for as much as 15 percent of sales volume in any one year. Like Morgan, Wadia’s high-end product is so specialized that it could not survive on sales in its home country alone.
