U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX, took Export-Import Bank Chairman Fred Hochberg and local business executives on a tour of Frenchy’s Sausage Company.

She said the Ex-Im Bank will enable the northwest side business to move its product to international markets, like …

“South and Central America, and beyond. This is the opportunity that we’ve come to lay the groundwork for, for Frenchy’s,” Jackson Lee said.

Ex-Im Bank is the country’s official export credit agency. It helps secure financing for businesses looking to export their goods and services.

Chairman Hochberg said Houston area businesses lead the country in sending goods overseas.

“People want to buy from America. They like American goods, American quality. And so, we’re looking forward to working with this company, to support them and finance them when they look to conquer overseas markets,” Hochberg said.

Percy King Creuzot said the Ex-Im Bank will give his company the chance to expand.

“I think with the people that are gathered here, I’m going to depend on them to help me to export our product,” Creuzot said.

Ex-Im Bank has helped generate more than $29 billion in exports from Texas.
