-Two-year program provides resources to support international business-

RICHMOND - The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) today announced the acceptance of a Rockingham County company, Dynamic Aviation Group, Inc., into its two-year Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) program. Launched in January 2002, the program assists exporters in the Commonwealth that have firmly established domestic operations and are committed to international exporting as an expansion strategy.

Currently, the VALET program has 47 companies as participants. The program provides participating companies assistance from the Commonwealth and from a team of experienced international service providers to help meet their international goals. These private sector service providers, such as attorneys, website designers, bankers, translators, accountants and freight forwarders contribute essential expertise to assist companies in executing their export initiatives.

Dynamic Aviation Group joins the program as part of the 24th class of the VALET program. To participate, each eligible business must meet several quantitative criteria and complete an application process. Participating firms are chosen based on their dedication to growth through export. Currently, more than 200 Virginia companies have been accepted to participate in the VALET program.

“The VALET program generates international sales for Virginia businesses,” said Paul Grossman, VEDP Vice President of International Trade. “Since its inception in 2002, the program has worked with more than 200 businesses to accelerate their international sales growth. Because of the program’s proven success and because jobs are created when Virginia companies sell more into global markets, it is important that we continue to assist Virginia companies through the program. We are happy to welcome Dynamic Aviation Group to VALET and look forward to working with the company over the course of the next two years.”

Dynamic Aviation provides modified turboprop aircraft for government and commercial customers worldwide. Quick turnaround, creative aircraft modification and operational excellence are important reasons why the company excels when it comes to delivering special-mission aviation solutions.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership, a marketing organization, was created by the Virginia General Assembly in 1995 to encourage, stimulate, and support the development and expansion of the economy of the Commonwealth. The Partnership is a state authority, which is governed by a 25-member Board of Directors appointed by the Governor and the Virginia General Assembly. To accomplish its objectives of promoting economic expansion within the Commonwealth, the Partnership focuses its efforts on business recruitment, expansion and international trade. VEDP has offices in Virginia, China, Germany, Mexico, Japan, India and the United Kingdom.
