Materials Services expands operations in South America
ThyssenKrupp Metallurgical Products, part of the Materials Services business area of the ThyssenKrupp Group, has expanded its operations in South America. On July 10, 2014 it opened the Group’s first site in Bolivia, extending its global network of sales offices.
The site is in the Andean city of Oruro, which has been a major mining center for silver, tin and other metals for centuries. As well as marketing the shiny nonferrous metal tin, ThyssenKrupp Metallurgical Products will focus on trading copper and tungsten from the site in Bolivia. The new office will be managed by Dani Pick, who previously worked in a senior position for an international raw materials company.
The opening of the new office is another step in the company’s growth strategy. “We see major potential to win important market share in South America and develop profitable new business. Through proximity to our customers and suppliers we can further strengthen existing relationships,” explains Kai-Norman Knötsch, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Metallurgical Products.
