Italian attachments maker Bolzoni has parted ways with its Chilean distributor, Anval, and named an employee to represent its Bolzoni Auramo and Meyer brands.
Anval has been Bolzoni's sole representative in Chile for 12 years.
The company has confirmed that Michel Bulat Uhart will take over representation in Chile.
According to a company statement, Uhart has significant experience and knowledge of the materials handling industry and "will be able to provide highly qualified consultancy for the optimum logistics solutions for customer-specific applications".
Uhart will also be responsible for the co-ordination of service and after-sales back-up to customers on site and will also supply spare parts.
The statement stresses that the new representative, with the support of the group headquarters and production facilities, will continue and extend the valued business co-operation with all customers in the Chilean market.
