Baker Products has appointed Puma Forest Products in Parral, Chihuahua as its representative in northern Mexico. Headed by Mario Valdez, Puma has been a Baker customer for nearly ten years, informally promoting its products in the past.
Mike McNail, president of Baker, said the decision was made due to a combination of increased interest in Baker Products in the area, along with a strong desire by Mr. Valdez to formalize their working relationship. Mike said, “Mr. Valdez has been an asset to Baker for several years. His energy and enthusiasm for our products, as well as his location and standing in the industry, made this an easy decision for us.”
Puma Forest Products operates two milling operations in northern Mexico. The expansion to promote Baker there is a natural progression for Mr. Valdez, who has been instrumental in previously selling several Baker machines to other mills in his area. Baker will provide promotional material in Spanish, as well as technical manuals and information. Puma Forest Products will stock service parts and blades on site, and will also offer Baker factory-trained service technicians to better support current and future Baker customers.
Baker will continue expanding its sale network in Mexico and is currently reviewing prospective agents in the southern part of the country. “While we’ve had great success in our own country and around the world,” says Mike, “we’ve never focused on a region outside of the U.S. We see a growth opportunity in our neighbor to the south, and feel confident we can serve them well.”
