Altech to manufacture in Argentina

Altech, the Italy-based manufacturer of labeling equipment and identification systems, has opened a subsidiary in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to serve the Latin America market.  

A number of the company’s automatic labeling systems will be manufactured in the new subsidiary, and will be available with an Argentine certificate of origin. Import duties that are applied in some South American countries to European products can therefore be avoided. Altech LA is a joint venture with Tema, formerly Altech’s distributor for the region.  

Altech’s product range includes applicators for self-adhesive, wrap-around and shrink sleeve labeling, as well as labeling heads and material identification systems.  

‘We are committed to manufacturing labeling systems that offer high-end quality and performance at extremely competitive prices,’ said Gerardo Naveira, managing director of

Altech LA.
‘We are also going to trade in complementary products, such as label printers and ribbons, in order to offer an exhaustive range of items that can meet the very diversified and complex labeling needs of the food, chemical, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, our natural absorption markets.’ 

Piero Salvini, president of Altech, said: ‘Altech LA will have the delicate job of enriching and nurturing the Latin American market by further assisting current distributors, expanding their network and offering them the results of 18 years of experience and research on the global market. Let's not forget that Altech operates around the world with a network of over 80 distributors in more than 50 countries. We look at overseas markets where there are enormous and tangible development opportunities for those who, like us, will invest resources.’
