In January, Marta de la Torre was named Regional Director of Sales and Service for Latin America. She has vast experience in these regions with her former role as Sales Regional Manager. She has successfully provided knowledge of quality assurance and process control to the glass, plastic and packaging industries in the region.
Latin America continues to offer development in the packaging markets, evident with the significant growth in Agr’s custom within this area. Following the opening of Agr Packaging Services in Mexico and to better support this growing demand, Agr made the decision to advance the role of Ms. de la Torre as well as expand the sales force in the region with the addition of Sergio Ruiz. Ruiz comes to Agr following 10 years in process, project and sales engineering in the region, and Israel Hernandez and his team of factory-trained service engineers continue to provide installation, service support and training to meet customers’ needs within the area. Maintaining a local presence of Agr personnel provides the ability to respond to customer needs in a timely and cost-effective fashion.
Agr International Inc. develops and manufactures a full line of laboratory and on-line testing and measurement devices for containers and similar products. Its headquarters and main manufacturing facility is in Butler, PA, USA.
