Dayco has announced the opening of its new sales office in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Officially opened in October 2015, the office is expected to generate new business in the region as well as support current aftermarket business partners.
The office is located in the Puerto Madero area and is led by Dario Taha, aftermarket sales manager in South America. Taha is also responsible for the efficient execution of Dayco’s business strategy in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.
“We’re excited to open this new sales office in South America as we continue to take vital steps to globalize our operations in order to provide a seamless service experience for our customers,” said John Bohenick, chief executive officer for Dayco. “To make this happen, we’re investing in global core capacities that underscore value creation, which include a drive to innovate, an ability to push the boundaries of endurance, a bias towards systems dynamics and an urge to serve our customers.”
Dayco entered the market in Argentina in November 1995 by importing, marketing and selling automotive belts. Two years later, the company opened its manufacturing plant in Cordoba which produces belts both for major automakers and the automotive aftermarket. Certified according to international standards OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949, the company and its Associates at the Cordoba plant firmly believe in safety, environmental protection and the quality of its products.
“What sets Dayco apart is our ability to push the boundaries of endurance in the products and systems we create while staying focused on achieving customer satisfaction and being committed to a safe, healthful workplace and environment,” said Joao Ramon, president of Dayco in South America.
The new Buenos Aires office is part of an internal expansion project in the region as Dayco strengthens its ties with customers in South America and increases market share in the automotive aftermarket.
