An Easton company will be joining Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett as he leaves for a trade delegation to Brazil and Chile this weekend.

The purpose of the business development mission is to focus on creating new economic opportunities for job growth.

"With more than 15,000 Pennsylvania businesses currently selling goods and services abroad supporting nearly 400,000 jobs here at home, exports will continue to be a critical component of our economy," Corbett said. "Strengthening our trade relationships with Brazil and Chile will lead to new export growth and jobs for Pennsylvanians."

Fluortek Inc., which has headquarters in Easton, specializes in custom-dimensioned tubing for medical device applications.

During the trip, Fluortek representatives will look to connect with potential clients.

Other companies along for the trade mission include those in the energy, life sciences, manufacturing technology, mining, transportation and logistics industries.

The April 6-16 trade mission will cover three cities in the two nations.
