SHARING OUR VISION
At Masson International, we strongly believe that all companies and institutions with international ambitions should find support in accessing new markets when needed.
Remember this feeling when you see a friend's face when arriving in a foreign place you never visited before? We take pride in being this friend of yours in business, when exploring new markets or facing a tricky situation.
Masson International reunites the willing to serve other people and the passion for international sales, this is the essence of the company.
We are former Export Managers or Business Developers, and we love signing new deals. So, let them be your deals.
Back when we were Export Managers, we often wondered:
Masson International was created to answer all of the above and to provide a tailor-made solution for each of your tricky situations encountered in Switzerland, France or Belgium.
“Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles like honesty, integrity, treating people with respect.”
