Beutelspacher SA de CV, one of Mexico's most active press makers and technology developers, has reported a 100 percent jump in sales this year compared with 2009.
Sales went down 60 percent last year but we've recovered all that this year, President Sergio Beutelspacher Sandoval said March 24 at Plastimagen México 2010 in Mexico City.
With annual sales of about $2 million, the company has added 15 workers in the past month and now employs 55 at its manufacturing and development complex in Mexico City, he said.
The influx of new personnel is largely related to the company's work for suppliers of polycarbonate parts for refrigerator manufacturers, Beutelspacher added.
The [PC] side of our business has really taken off, he said. We have developed new technology for the [appliance] sector.
Another strong side of the business is the development of technology for suppliers of recycled polyethylene cattle fences and plastic lumber, he said.
Now in its 32nd year, the firm has exported machinery and technology to the U.S., Canada, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Honduras, among other countries. We make ourselves known at shows like this one and NPE, he said.
He just exported technology to a PET bottler of hot liquids in the Dominican Republic, and a garment maker in El Salvador.
The technology in El Salvador is related to the adding of size labels on shirts, he said.
Asked about the future, Beutelspacher, always looking for growth, said he'd like to associate his firm with another outside Mexico.
