Kautex, headquartered in Bonn, has set up its sales office in Mexico to meet the growing demand for extrusion blow molding machines in the North and Central America market. The name of the new company is Kautex Machines México S.A. de C.V. and its headquarters are located in Mexico City. Mucio Vieyra, long-standing sales partner is going to run the office with support from three service technicians and the North American sales company Kautex Machines Inc., based in New Jersey.
Kautex sales offices are increasing in rapidly growing markets as a part of the decentralization strategy being pursued by the international manufacturer of extrusion blow molding machines.
Andreas Lichtenauer, the Managing Partner at Kautex Maschinenbau, said, “Proximity to our customers is an important element of our success story. The more familiar we are with the expectations and requirements of our local customers, the more appropriate the solutions we are able to offer them.”
Its KBS- and KSB-series machines have a good market in Mexico for automotive applications and KBB and KCC machines for industrial and consumer packaging.
