Talleres Lucas named as official Webtec service centre
Webtec choose Santiago, Chile as key location for new South American service centre
In line with Webtec’s successful strategy to expand their global service centres, Talleres Lucas in Santiago Chile, has been appointed as their authorized partner for South America.
With over 50 years’ experience in the hydraulic market, Talleres Lucas offers high-quality design and service facilities to their customers. The company has been an authorized distributor for Webtec for more than 20 years and already has a first-class test rig in place. This long and successful relationship, together with the company’s established service facilities and excellent industry reputation makes them the ideal choice for this new venture.
The new service centre will be kitted with the same testing equipment, both hardware and software, and an identical data acquisition system as used by Webtec. Webtec’s international sales manager, Steve Thorpe, will be implementing a full training programme and audit to ensure the team are fully experienced and qualified. Software updates will be carried out via the cloud system which will ensure that this new service centre will mirror Webtec’s own testing centres.
The agreement is part of Webtec’s global strategy to offer the same high level of service and support to customers through specially selected partners who have the same business and technical values in areas where there is no Webtec-owned facility.
Steve Thorpe, commenting on the agreement, said: ‘This latest service centre strengthens the network of support that we offer our global customers and will complement our existing service centres in the UK, US, and Australia. Located in Santiago, Talleres Lucas is ideally placed to offer our South American customers the great level of service that they deserve.’
Guillermo Flores, service and projects manager at Telleres Lucas, added: ‘Being able to update our data acquisition system and become a Webtec-certified service centre is an incredible achievement for our organization. It will give us more reliability/productivity for our operation, as well as the possibility to offer another service to our customers as we will be able to calibrate all Webtec flowmeters. This is part of our strategy in the long term and we will continue to invest to give the best service to our customers.’
