Epiphany sent Gordon Craig (Controller/Strategist) to Cuba on a trade mission organized by Catalyst Connection (manufacturing consulting organization). The Mayor of Pittsburgh, Bill Peduto, along with 6 business leaders traveled to Cuba on the mission to search out business and manufacturing opportunities.
The trip spanned 4 days and included meetings with Vice Minister of Construction, Director of Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment, President of Alimport (agricultural products), and the President of the Chamber of Commerce of Cuba. The message shared by nearly everyone we met was that they are eager for the embargo to be lifted and they want to work with us. Our group was the first American delegation that many have met.
There are great opportunities for Epiphany to get involved in, ranging from drinking water purification to produced water remediation. We are excited at the opportunity to do business in Cuba in the future.
