Polyurethane equipment specialist Hennecke GmbH has established a new agency in South America in cooperation with Argentinean hydraulic press maker Jose Iturrospe SAIC.

The two companies said in a 16 Sept statement that they will cooperate in selling Hennecke products and on qualified technical customer services.

Iturrospe, headquartered in Rosario in the Argentinean Province of Santa Fe, was set up in 1950, and, says Hennecke, has “an excellent knowledge of the market and plenty of experience in the local mechanical engineering sector.” This makes the company an valuable partner for the systematic expansion of the Hennecke sales and service network on the American continent, the company added.

This new agency is a response to the “increasing potential of the South American market and the growing demand for high quality, polyurethane-based

products within the region,” Hennecke management indicated.

The group’s experienced team of sales specialists and technical experts wants to support processors of those products with a broad spectrum of services in the local language and guarantee the shortest possible response times for delivery of plant and machine technology as well as spare parts.

Hennecke and Iturrospe will also pool their know-how in terms of high quality hydraulic presses for the discontinuous manufacture of polyurethane sandwich panels. Within this product group, the new agency covers the whole South American land surface up to the state border of Panama and Cuba.

Iturrospe will offer the complete Hennecke portfolio, except in Brazil, where long-term and competent Hennecke partner RoWe will continue to deal with local customers.
