Foundation of A TEC subsidiary in Mexico

Foundation of  A TEC subsidiary in Mexico
Published: 24 October 2007

To support its operations in North, Central and South America, A TEC has founded a subsidiary named Austria TEC, S.A. de C.V. in Puebla, Mexico. This has been prompted by increasing success in the Americas, following recent orders by Holcim Apasco, St. Lawrence Cement and Lafarge USA.

This new position complements the head office in Krems, Austria and its Malaysian subsidiary allowing A TEC to provide a global service with simply 3 divisions.

The new office will independently carry out process engineering, plant design and project management under supervision and support from A TEC’s head office. At the moment a professional team is being built up under the management of Jonathan Forinton, B.Eng. who has a broad experience in the cement industry.

A TEC is now closer to the customer in the American market and can offer a direct service for cement pyro-process technology.
