G Zero CNC Machining Awarded the STEP Grant

G Zero CNC Machining is proud to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious STEP Grant. This grant, funded in part through a grant with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and administered by the Idaho Department of Commerce, aims to support companies new to exporting by overcoming logistical and economic barriers to attend global events. The STEP Grant will play a crucial role in facilitating G Zero CNC Machining’s expansion into the Canadian market and strengthening its position in the international aerospace and defense industries.

The Importance of Canadian Market Expansion

Montréal, Canada, is widely recognized as one of the world’s aerospace capitals, alongside Seattle and Toulouse. The aerospace supply chains of the United States and Canada are highly integrated, with Canada consistently ranking among the top five export markets for U.S. aerospace goods. In 2019 alone, Canada received approximately $9.1 billion worth of exports, representing about 60% of total sector exports to the country. G Zero CNC Machining recognizes the immense opportunities presented by the Canadian aerospace market and is committed to tapping into its potential.

The Significance of ITAR Compliance

In addition to expanding into the Canadian market, G Zero CNC Machining is excited to implement an ITAR compliance program. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of U.S. government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services. Companies operating in the aerospace, military, or defense sectors must adhere to ITAR security measures. Failure to comply with ITAR regulations can result in significant fines or even criminal penalties. By proactively developing an ITAR compliance program, G Zero CNC Machining ensures national security and opens doors to new business opportunities.
