A recent governor-led trade mission to Israel featured three companies as examples of doing business with that nation.
GlobalSim, Intermountain Healthcare and Peel Therapeutics shared their international business experiences with the Utah delegation on the trip, which also included stops in Jordan. Nineteen companies and organizations participated.
“The purpose of this trade mission is to facilitate connections between Utah companies and Israel,” said Derek B. Miller, president and chief executive officer of World Trade Center Utah. “Expanding globally makes Utah companies more successful and grows Utah’s economy. GlobalSim, Intermountain Healthcare and Peel Therapeutics are examples to other Utah companies of how beneficial global connections can be.”
The delegation, led by Gov. Gary Herbert, visited the Ashdod Port in Israel, where GlobalSim’s premium simulator is used to train crane operators how to lift containers from a ship and move them to a truck or stack them on the ground. The crane operators move crates containing millions of dollars in products daily, so utilizing a simulator to train the operators helps mitigates risk and increases output.
