Doing business in a new market presents many unexpected problems mixed with many possibilities. Every market has its unique problems, characteristics and demands with which you have to comply in order to succeed.

The North American market still constitutes one of the largest markets and market opportunities in the world. To succeed there however, one requires the ability to adapt to the "playing rules" in the market.


  • Canada and USA cover a large geographical area and have almost 300 million consumers.
  • The market demands fast reactions and good back up as well as local adaptation.
  • Customers and representatives expect that someone can provide local support in the day to day activities.

Doing business in North America differs considerably from many other countries. Differences also exist between Canada and USA as well as within the countries' provinces and states. We can assist you in establishing yourself and also in succeeding in your daily activities.


Holmvall International Trading Inc. was established in Canada in 1982. Our staff consists of ex-Scandinavians, who can offer their broad experience from both the North American and European markets. We can offer you our local presence in combination with our broad experience of doing business in North America and in international markets.
