Core Business: Selling Building Materials

Unlike many firms operating in today’s dynamic import/export business, AWG, as holding company for CMI, Globalnex and Kompas Line, is clearly focused on representing manufacturers of building and construction related materials. This is where our combined 60 years of management experience has its roots and frankly, where we can offer the greatest marketing potential to our valued manufacturing clients. A clear understanding of everything from building codes and technical requirements to packaging, barcoding, palletizing and labeling preferences within a specific country can mean the difference between costly failure or profitable success for a manufacturer venturing in to new frontier for the first time. Leave it to our expertise to assist in mapping out a marketing strategy and identifying potential channel partners offering the greatest potential for your product.



Following CMI’s successful years helping U.S. based corporations target the international markets, Globalnex was established in 2001 with the primary goal of assisting manufacturers who desire to market, sell and distribute their products within the United States, Mexico and Canada. While it will also represent local North American companies, Globalnex is prepared to handle all aspects of the U.S. importing process for manufacturers based anywhere from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, to South America, Asia and the Pacific Rim. Following a complete market assessment for our new client, Globalnex will move quickly to establish new customer contacts for your products in a carefully selected distribution channel, which will offer the greatest potential for long term growth within North America.
