Vaisala, the leading provider of environmental and industrial measurement solutions, launched a new office in Mexico. With the office opening, Vaisala is responding to the growing demand for both industrial and weather measurement instruments and services in Latin America.
As a region with many cultures, strong economies and versatile industries, Latin America is an emerging market offering vast growth opportunities for businesses.
“The decision to expand our presence in Latin America was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Sampsa Lahtinen, Executive Vice President of Vaisala Industrial Measurements. “We see great opportunities in the Latin American market. It is a very dynamic region holding enormous potential due to the growing population and the emerging industry.”
Vaisala’s new office is located in Mexico City. “Mexico is a convenient location for the new office, as the Mexican economy is welcoming new players and the trade agreements make it an inviting country to strengthen our presence”, says Madjid Ouali, Office Manager and Sales Director for Vaisala Industrial Measurements in Latin America. “We hope to see our presence accelerating interaction with our customers. This new office will increase our ability to serve current and future markets”, Ouali continues.
Vaisala has been present in Latin America for decades. Vaisala established a subsidiary in Rio de Janeiro in 2012, which serves Vaisala’s Weather and Environment business in Brazil. Today the company has customers in every Latin American country.
“We are happy to serve our customers better in Latin America by expanding our presence to Mexico. Our office in Rio de Janeiro continues to deliver high-quality weather and air quality observation systems to our customers in Latin America in the face of increasing amount of extreme weather and pollution related issues in the region”, says Aleksis Kajava, Head of Latin America for Vaisala Weather and Environment.
The office opening was held at the residence of the Ambassador of Finland in Mexico, Mr. Roy K. Eriksson. At the opening event, the Ambassador congratulated the Vaisala team and endorsed the Embassy’s support for the new office.
