The opening of Catari Chile’s new branch and analysis of the scaffolding trends
With José Cunha
With the demand for scaffolding suppliers growing at a fast pace in the industrial sector, Catari Chile outlined a roam of continuous growth to keep up with the market needs. As a result of the modernization of its habits, the Chilean market is currently in a transitional moment and starts to perceive scaffolding as an increasingly valuable asset in the demanding industrial maintenance sector, instead of an equipment formerly bonded to construction, a more conservative sector in Chile.
Catari Chile, nowadays a reference in scaffolding sales and rental due to its extraordinary performance, intends to respond to this trend through a value proposition based on reliable engineering services for demanding technical solutions, immediate scaffold availability even in challenging geographic areas, and the use of certified scaffolding exclusively.
To understand the challenges of the scaffolding business in the region and how his team is ready overcome them, we spoke with José Cunha, Commercial Director at Catari Chile. The experienced manager also took the opportunity to address the opening of Catari Chile’s new branch in Antofagasta, a new scaffolding rental and sales park complementary to the existing ones in Los Angeles and Santiago.
Which are, currently, the main challenges for Catari Chile?
The opening of this new delegation in the desert of Antofagasta, is, therefore, Catari Chile's reaction to the main challenge it faced: the extension of Chilean territory.
The evolution of scaffolding equipment in Chile is another topic that José Cunha addresses. In his words:
José Cunha states that, facing the current scenario, even the most traditional companies are coming along.
And what about the role of product certification?
Regarding workers safety and ensuring the correct assembling, the process is transparently led.
With the opening of the Antofagasta branch, Catari Chile intends to consolidate its position as a reference scaffolding supplier for industrial maintenance and, considering the growth over the past years and the forecasted strategy, market leadership is the ultimate goal.
