Our services include facilitation of export financing, international marketing, and export consulting.

UXL maintains fully staffed offices in Changchun, China and Montreal, Canada with representatives worldwide.
UXL seeks to assist markets in transition by offering new and refurbished North American products designed to promote sustainable agriculture, development and a cleaner environment. With a sales force speaking more than ten languages, UXL utilizes economic sector analyses, native cultural and business practices, and aggressive marketing strategies to penetrate emerging markets in the developing world.
UXL's face to face approach towards international trade creates the need for a well educated and experienced staff. Our foreign operations managers are hand-picked for their many years of experience in dealing with our clients, and most importantly, for their special contacts with the government officials responsible for overseeing the importation of our products and services.
The company was founded by Leigh Lindenbaum and Robert Rich. Mr. Rich was formerly the coordinator of U.S. State Department programs establishing business schools and advising the finance and agriculture ministers of Central and Eastern Europe. He speaks Russian fluently. Mr. Lindenbaum manages UXL headquarters in Silicon Valley, California, where he has forged lasting relationships among the major environmental and bio-technology manufacturers around the world. He was awarded a national grant for clinical research at Stanford University, and gained valuable business experience while living in the Middle East. He is currently the youngest member in the San Francisco chapter of YEO (Young Entrepreneursí Organization). Mr. Lindenbaum was Nationally selected by Opportunity Magazine as one of the "Rapid Successes: Top Ten Young Entrepreneurs of 1998".
"But you would probably be most intrigued by Universal Export Limited.
It was started by a young man (Leigh Lindenbaum), one year out of
college, with $15,000. Six years later, they have offices around the
world, helping export environmentally friendly products. One
interesting aspect is the company gives 10 percent of its profits to
charity -- what we would say here in the Jesuit way, being a man or
women for others."
