About Ascendant:

Each of our coopers has an account with AscendantFX, so our customers are not required to provide any information other than a copy of their invoice or order confirmation. Simply fax or email AscendantFX your Euro invoice or order confirmation, and they will send you a converted invoice in $USD. Mail your $USD check payable to AscendantFX, and they will credit the appropriate amount of Euros to each cooperage with instructions to apply the payment to your invoice.

Customers of Bouchard Cooperages can also contact AscendantFX to fix the exchange rate at the time of their order. This simple transaction, known as a forward contract, allows our customers to know the total $USD cost at the time of their order, and eliminates any risk from fluctuations in the exchange rate. Please contact Ed Casey at 866‑999‑3571 for more information.
