H&T Presspart, a global manufacturer of respiratory drug delivery components, is pleased to announce the opening of a new sales office to cover the Latin America region.

Based in Montevideo, Uruguay, H&T Presspart Latin America S.A will provide support for their customers in the increasingly important South and Central American region.

H&T Presspart is also pleased to announce that Jesus Polanco will take up the role of Sales and Business Development Manager Latin America with immediate effect. Jesus brings with him a wealth of experience in the respiratory drug delivery field having previously worked as Business Development Manager at H&T Presspart Tarragona.

Mr Polanco will support the setting up of H&T Presspart Latin America, as well as service the growing needs of H&T Presspart’s customer base in the region.

Also joining H&T Presspart Latin America will be Carina Sposato, who will be taking up the role of Customer Services Latin America. The Latin America team will report to Dana Shears, who will continue his role as Sales Director for the Americas, based in the U.S.A.

Julian Hemy, H&T Presspart Commercial Director, commented: “This announcement shows our commitment to the Latin American region and will ensure that we are in the best position possible to support the strategic needs of H&T Presspart and our customer base.”

As well as the opening of a sales office in South America, H&T Presspart is planning to make a significant part of this year’s investments in developing competencies in the area of metered dose inhalers (MDI), an application for the medical treatment of respiratory diseases.

H&T Presspart already supplies pharmaceutical industry customers throughout the world with MDI canisters and  MDI actuators. In future, H&T Presspart will provide actuators with integrated dose counters or the Quantum Dose Indicator where required. They show the patient the current fill level of the metered dose inhalers. This considerably reduces the risk of an MDI unexpectedly reaching the end of its life in a critical situation.

In the coming years, H&T Presspart will complement their European production capacity with manufacturing and sales offices in Asia. For more information on H&T Presspart and their products and services please contact the team.
