Textual note taken from Equipcon on December 20, 2023
Equipcon, a leading provider of non-destructive testing (NDT) solutions based in Noblesville, IN, USA is excited to unveil its ambitious plans to supply NDT consumable materials to Mexico in the first quarter of this year. This expansion marks a significant milestone for Equipcon as the company forges ahead in its mission to explore new horizons and overcome unique challenges in their new markets.
The venture into the Mexican market has not been without its complexities, with stringent regulations and standards necessitating a meticulous approach. However, Equipcon remains undaunted, employing dedicated research and a proactive learning approach to gain clarity and confidently navigate the challenges inherent in delivering these materials into Mexico.
In Mexico, Equipcon’s primary focus initially is on consumable materials, specifically emphasizing liquid penetrant and magnetic particle inspection methods with high-quality ZChem products that adhere strictly to all applicable regulations and industry standards, including listing on the QPL.
Situated in San Francisco, Ixhuatan, Oaxaca, Equipcon’s Mexico headquarters will serve as the HUB for its operations in the Latin American region of Mexico, Central America, and South America under the leadership of Luis Cruz, who manages all these territories.
Luis Cruz, a native of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico, brings 16 years of invaluable experience in the field of NDT. Married to Jeanette Cruz and a proud parent of three children – Luis, Joshua, and David – Luis is dedicated to establishing Equipcon as a prominent name in Mexico and beyond.
Reflecting on his journey, Luis Cruz emphasizes the significance of continuous learning in the NDT field, citing integrity as a core value. Acknowledging the challenges of establishing Equipcon MX, he expresses pride in contributing to the widespread use of NDT methods in Mexico and supporting companies shifting their manufacturing capabilities to the region via near-onshoring.
Luis’s mission is clear: “To share, learn, train, and provide the best products, services, and equipment to Latin American companies, ensuring they can conduct inspections without compromising the quality of the products used.”
Equipcon is committed to adapting to regional regulations and standards in each market it approaches, collaborating with local partners via regional “HUBS” to ensure the success of its representatives and customers. The company looks forward to a future full of growth opportunities, not only in Mexico but also throughout Central and South America.
