Successful start for motan-colortronic in Mexico

Since 1st May 2021, motan-colortronic employees have been busy serving the Mexican market.


motan holding gmbh recently founded a new subsidiary in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico. The motan group’s decision to reinforce its activities in the area was based on the positive order situation, combined with a loyal customer base and projects in the pipeline. 

The team currently consists of 5 persons - two Area Sales Managers, one Admin Assistant, one Applications and Service Manager and a Service Technician. The location will allow motan-colortronic to provide flexible services and offer swifter, targeted responses to customer requirements from all over Mexico. 

Choosing a location was not a difficult task, as Santiago de Querétaro is one of Mexico’s plastics industry clusters. Numerous motan customers and OEM partners are located in the area. It is also the home of Avance Industrial, which has been the industrial representative for motan-colortronic in this market since 1963. Modern offices with sufficient floor space have been leased in the Avance Tech Center. 

motan-colortronic will offer a comprehensive range of services in Mexico: Spare parts supply, repairs, maintenance contracts, assembly and commissioning, telephone support and service coordination.

The new Avance Tech Center is equipped with motan peripheral devices. Prospects and customers can make a site visit to see the variety of motan devices for themselves, and how well they perform. motan-colortronic will also be able to provide customer trainings as required. The combined expertise of motan-colortronic and Avance will allow both partners to serve and support their shared customers in an effective manner.  

“We are looking forward to moving even closer to our customers and partners in Mexico,” says Lukas Günther, Sales Director for motan-colortronic gmbh Süd.
