After selling in Mexico through representatives for 20 years, Ampacet Corp. has set up an office just outside Mexico City to serve local customers.
``We set up here in March because of the size of the market and its recent growth,'' said Guillermo Quijano, Latin American sales manager. ``We have noticed a sharp growth in the film industry and in [biaxially oriented polypropylene film] in the last three years in Mexico, well above the rest of Latin America.''
Tarrytown, N.Y.-based Ampacet generates about $6 million in sales annually in Mexico, he said. The firm has warehouses in Mexico City and Monterrey.
Ampacet manufactures color and additive masterbatches.
