New Latin American Representative to Lead MetalTech-Global’s Southward Expansion


New Latin American Representative MetalTech-Global, the nation’s premier distributor of sheet, coil, and finished architectural metal systems is literally broadening its horizons while aiming to quickly become the pre-eminent provider in the Latin American market. With LEED and Green Building projects on the rise, President Nils Simonsen has identified interesting business opportunities for MetalTech-Global south of the border. Simonsen cites, “the market development for LEED and other green building initiatives in Latin America is still coming forth and we hope to get in on the ground floor. By utilizing our EcoChoice™ materials and efficient cladding systems, we seek to introduce the sustainability component of our growing value proposition to our current and future customers in Latin America.”

This exciting new undertaking will be facilitated by the newest addition to the MetalTech-Global team, Miss Andrea Ramirez Leon, in the position of In-house Legal Counsel. Miss Ramirez Leon holds dual degrees in law from Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico and Emory University School of Law in Atlanta allowing her to practice in both the United States and Mexico. She will work alongside MetalTech-Global’s growing sales team in expanding the business and positioning the company as the preferred specialty fabricator of architectural systems for high-end metals in the Latin American market. Working closely with architects and specifiers, Miss Ramirez Leon will acquaint them with the latest useful information regarding architectural metals and systems, providing additional tools and ideas to incorporate into their creative work.

Miss Ramirez Leon noted, relative to her new appointment, “I appreciate and welcome the opportunity to combine and apply my years of experience working as a business attorney in Mexico with my more recently acquired academic credentials in US law. MetalTech-Global’s success in the Latin American market, will undoubtedly translate in enriching my career and I’m excited to face the day to day challenges of working in this dynamic, emerging market.” Miss Ramirez Leon’s diverse professional experience, in conjunction with her multicultural background and proficiency in different languages such as English, Spanish, and Portuguese, will enable her to be the perfect liaison between MetalTech-Global and our new Latin American clients. “By acting as a bridge to facilitate the communication between our customers in Latin America and MetalTech-Global, my hope is that in addition to loving our products, our clients feel 100% satisfied with our customer service because we not only speak their professional language but also their native one.”

MetalTech-Global welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with future customers to develop an enduring and achievable vision for green building in Latin America.
