Tomra Food increases Latin America presence with new regional HQ

Food processing machinery specialist, Tomra Food, has opened new regional headquarters to enhance its support of food processors and packers across Latin America.

The new purpose-built base, in Santiago, Chile, means that Tomra Food and its two sister companies – Compac and BBC Technologies – now all have a strong presence in the region, which contributes significantly to the global supply of fruits, nuts, vegetables, potato products, grains and seeds, dried fruit, meat and seafood.

Located in the ENEA business park in the Pudahuel area of Santiago, the new headquarters are close to the city’s international airport for easy access for customers from all over Latin America.

The 810 square-meter, two-story building adds to the premises BBC Technologies has been operating in Chillán for 10 years with more than 20 employees.

The new building accommodates offices, a meeting room, a spare parts store for greater spare parts stock, and a test and demonstration area that serves as a Customer Experience Centre and Regional Training Hub. These facilities and activities are creating local employment opportunities.

“Tomra Food is growing in Latin America, as it is elsewhere in the world, and Chile is the perfect location for expanding our presence here,” said Michel Picandet, Head of Tomra Food.

“The new regional headquarters put us closer to all our Latin American customers to ensure they receive the best resources, service and support. This large facility hosts both Service and Sales personnel, affirming our commitment to the future in this region.”
