Export is a borough in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, United States, surrounded entirely by the Municipality of Murrysville. The population was 895 at the 2000 census.


A post office called Export has been in operation since 1892.[3] The borough was so named because coal was once mined in and exported from the town.[4]

The remains of Westmoreland Coal Company's South (#2) mine are still visible behind the District Court building in Export. A 2018 project unearthed three entrances. A fourth entrance was discovered in January 2019 by Michael Mance and Lou Corsi.[5]
