On May 23, Barco officially opened its brand-new offices in Mexico City by treating various customers and business partners to an exclusive showcase of Barco’s latest products and solutions. Emphasizing the importance of Barco’s presence in the Mexican market, the Belgian ambassador in Mexico also attended the opening.
“We are very happy to be expanding in Mexico”, said Ney Corsino, VP Barco Latin America. “Barco is yet another multinational that believes in the economic and political progress of the country as one of the largest growth engines in Latin America. This investment further reflects our commitment to Mexico as one of Latin America’s main markets”.
Significantly investing in its Mexico operations in 2010, Barco was able to successfully capture more than 90% of the Mexican Digital Cinema market over the past three years. After installing local teams for each of its core divisions, the new Barco offices in Mexico City were a logical next step.
“Mexico has proven to be an attractive emerging market for us; it is like an awakening tiger”, commented Ivan Cannau, Country Director for Barco Mexico. “After 3 years of ever-increasing activity, it was time to consolidate our operations. We used the opportunity to create an innovative place where we can collaborate as one single team with our stakeholders, presenting them with the latest technologies for their visualization projects and necessities”.
