Kathrein has opened a new office in Mexico City to steer future activities in Latin America. The opening was celebrated at an inauguration ceremony with business partners, customers and Kathrein employees. The new office is part of a strategy to expand the company’s presence in regional markets.
“The office launch is an important milestone on our way to strengthen our foothold and expand our presence in Latin America,” said Anton Kathrein, CEO of the Kathrein Group. “The new office space in the north-west of Mexico City provides the perfect setting for our team to offer optimum service to our customers in South and Central America.” Thanks to the modern, open-plan workspace, there is plenty of room for the employees. It is designed for further growth and additional work force.
The new office offers two conference rooms and a multi-functional room, which can be separated flexibly as required. “This provides ample space to present new solutions or conduct trainings for our customers and partners,” explained Rafael Rojo, CEO of Kathrein Latin America. There is also a small lab for carrying out tests and diagnostic inspections. A Kathrein RFID system ensures access control throughout the entire office space.
Latin America includes more than 30 countries and has very promising growth prospects. “There is a strong demand for new services running over high-performance communication technologies in this region. Kathrein offers a broad scope of competencies and can therefore help its customers to meet challenges and exploit new opportunities,” said Rojo.
The new office was opened in Mexico because the country is one of the most important markets in Latin America. The location in the capital city is in the immediate vicinity of important customers from the mobile communications sector. In 2015, Kathrein had already opened a new production facility in Tlaxcala.
