Subject: Latin American Sales Manager
I am happy to announce the appointment of Ing. Roberto Hegel Castellanos as our new Latin American Sales Manager. Roberto will be based out of Leon, Mexico. His responsibilities are to continue our growth plan into Mexico, Central and South America. Roberto has over 25 years experience in the irrigation industry. This experience includes working for AMANCO (manufacturers of PVC pipe and fittings), Senninger Irrigation and managing farming operations. During this time he has worked with the different irrigation technologies (Pivot, Drip and Solid Set). This diverse background and agricultural engineering experience will be a benefit to our current and future customer base.
After completing the orientation period, Roberto will be contacting our existing customers in the region. ICII’s growth objectives include a Mexican Branch Operation in a centrally located distribution point where inventory will be maintained. This will give our customers the lowest in country pricing available and quicker delivery times. Currently product is being shipped from our various regional warehouse including the Amarillo, Texas branch. The freight savings to our dealers will be significant and increase the demand pull from this region.
Irrigation Components International has made a commitment to increase our technical and commercial presence into the Latin American Market. Roberto is very excited about his new challenge and ICII is excited in welcoming him on board.
