Missoula company Sun Mountain Sports held a special tour of its facility on Friday afternoon, welcoming diplomats from across the globe.
Ambassadors from Canada, China, Japan, Germany, and Peru all visited the golf equipment manufacturer.
The international representatives came via invitation from Senator Max Baucus as part of an ambassadors tour across Montana.
Over 200 employees work for Sun Mountain domestically and management was very appreciative of the intercontinental feedback.
Rick Reimers, Sun Mountain Owner, said, "Well it's fantastic. I think we got a good reaction. I never know if something is a good idea or not. I got some great feedback. You can see the excitement with some of the new things we're working on. Its been a great day."
Senator Max Baucus said, "We're all interrelated more and more. The more we can make these connections with other countries to exploit and take advantage of other opportunities that I can help provide, the more likely it is we're going to get good jobs."
The five foreign ambassadors and Senator Baucus will continue with their trade promotion tour leading up to the Economic Summit being held in Butte on Monday.
