Tecpalsa is now responsible for the provision of Powerscreen machines, genuine spare parts and machine maintenance across the country. Iain Laidler, Territory Manager for Latin America, comments on the appointment, “Powerscreen conducted detailed research to identify a distributor in Colombia capable of serving our existing customers’ needs and ensuring that our brand values are promoted. Tecpalsa’s experience as a distributor of construction and mining equipment means that we can count on a strong focus on customer support, one of our core principles. Extensive industry experience also means that Tecpalsa already has strong relationships with customers in the mining sector, while also being able to build a strong network across other sectors including quarrying and construction.”
Tecpalsa was formed in 2012 and was appointed as the exclusive distributor for Komatsu Mining Equipment with facilities in Barranquilla and Bogota. Upon signing the Powerscreen distribution contract for Colombia, Raul Bizema, General Manager of Tecpalsa, said, “Colombia continues to be one of South America´s strongest performing economies and this is projected to grow further in coming years. We have developed an ambitious growth strategy and we look forward to working closely with the Powerscreen brand to deliver on our combined goals.”
