Koch-Technik further expands in Mexico with acquisition

The acquisition of representative agency GiTamsa has been completed, and a new sales and training centre is going to open in Querétaro in early 2019, German-headquartered specialist for peripheral equipment for the plastics processing industry,  Werner Koch Maschinentechnik GmbH (Koch-Technik) said in a press statement.

“Given the highly positive turnover trends that we had seen in Mexico over the years, it seemed logical to invest in our sales partner GiTamsa in order to boost our growth in Central America and continue expanding our market,” Carsten Koch, Managing Director of Werner Koch Maschinentechnik GmbH, reported.

Since the foundation of GiTamsa seven years ago, Koch-Technik has been successfully cooperating with the Mexican company based in Querétaro. Now it has acquired a majority stake in GiTamsa.

Armando Feregrino, founder and Managing Director of GiTamsa, relies on a team of more than 30 employees. Of the seventeen sales and administration employees, six are responsible for the area around Querétaro. The service and installation team counts thirteen highly qualified technicians.

Many well-known customers from the automotive, packaging and medical technology sectors already rely on high-quality equipment and systems produced by Koch-Technik.

Meanwhile, the existing site in Terra Business Park in Querétaro is currently being expanded by 1,000 sq m. A new sales and training centre is also under construction and is expected to be completed by March/April 2019.

“The new sales and training centre – also known as TechCenter – is necessary in order to train our clients on site, so that they can become familiar with our equipment and systems under production conditions,” said Michael Rentschler, KOCH Sales Director for Mexico. “The new TechCenter will display our entire range of products, including a central conveying and drying system.”

Aspiring to expand its market presence in Northern Mexico, KOCH-Technik has acquired a property in Saltillo, near Monterrey, to open up another sales office and TechCenter. Counting two regional sales agents and two service technicians, the office will start operating in early 2019. By the end of next year, Koch-Technik will open up a second TechCenter.
