Company visits Mexico to meet with government water commissions, local industry professionals
At the invitation of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade in Ontario, UV Pure recently participated in a trade mission to Mexico in late November.
“Overall it was a very nice blend of government and industry, getting to know each other and sharing ideas. There is a large market there for UV disinfection,” said Dave Lancaster, principal with MexWater Systems, UV Pure’s Mexican distribution partner.
Five Ontario companies participated in the trade mission including: GE Water Processing, IBU Group, SanCor, World Water Operator Training Co. and UV Pure Technologies. MexWater Systems’ Gerardo Huitron, director of construction waste, presented for UV Pure, the only presentation given by a Canadian company in Spanish.
“UV Pure’s representatives had the chance to meet a hundred new contacts during the activities on the Mexico mission,” said Mary Claire Whitaker, GAES Consultancy. “This included state and national government water commissions, housing developers, contractors, and manufacturers. Since the trip, we have been hearing of significant Mexican interest in UV Pure.”
“Canadian federal and provincial trade missions are an effective and supportive tactic for our target export markets, and we expect to increase our participation as our export distribution footprint grows,” added UV Pure CEO Rick VanSant.
