Arce tool will not only handle the sales activities in Mexico, they also will be able to support inmess in service and maintenance activities for the growing number of inmess machines in Mexico. “We were able to sell a good number of machines in Mexico recently” says Jan-Marc, “and we want to offer our customers in Mexico the same speedy support they are used to from other locations. Arce tool, a well-known supplier to the automotive industry is the right partner for us.”
MPT Inc. combines the multi-year-experience in the Asian market and the tyre industry of the four founders with a broad understanding of the needs of the customers in Asia. “When we were asked by inmess to be their spearhead in the Asean countries we gladly accepted,” states Dato Ishak ”the inmess philosophy and our own approach to the market are very alike so we are convinced that we can offer added value to our customers”.
