In response to the growing demand in North and Central America, Kautex Machinery, a German extrusion blow molding machine supplier, set up a sales office in Mexico.
The move is part of Kortez's strategy to decentralize the establishment of sales offices in a rapidly growing market.
Kautex Managing Partner Andreas Lichtenauer said: "Being close to our customers is an important factor in our success."
Kotters' Mexico-based manufacturing company, based in Mexico City, will be operated by Kautex long-time sales partner Mucio Vieyra.
Vieyra will also be supported by three service technicians and Kautex Machines, a North American sales company.
Kautes expects to add more service technicians to the Mexican team by 2018.
