They have factories and offices in multiple countries and are globally managed from their centralized office, typically in their parent country. Anyways, please note that simply exporting goods to other countries to be sold does not make a company an MNC.
The primary reason for a company to become an MNC is to grow its customer base and to expand in multiple countries for generating more revenue and profit. These MNCs may improvise (or add) on their products/services specific to the countries where they are operating to fit the customer needs and culture.
