Key Technology has promoted Alvaro Núñez to regional manager for Mexico.
Núñez is responsible for developing sales to bring Key’s digital sorters, conveyers and process automation systems to food processors in Mexico.
Steve Johnson, senior director Latin America and Asia Sales said Alvaro has experience with its equipment and an understanding of the customers.
“His technical and industry knowledge enables him to quickly deliver tremendous value to food processors. Since Key opened its sales and service office in Mexico in 2002, we’ve built strong relationships and established our leadership position.”
Núñez has been with Key for 15 years, working at the company’s headquarters in Walla Walla, Washington USA. The firm will be present at Pack Expo Las Vegas in booth #S-7222.
Most recently, he was an applications engineer, collaborating with sales engineering to meet customer’s needs and working with food processors in the field, contributing his applications expertise.
Previously, he held engineering positions with Key’s R&D team as well as its service department.
Born and raised in Mexico, Núñez will relocate to Key Technology’s office in Santiago de Queretaro, Mexico.
“Key has a fantastic opportunity to expand its business in Mexico with products and services that perfectly match the needs of food processors in this region,” said Núñez.
"Our complete range of belt- and chute-fed sorters, along with conveying and other processing technologies, are ideal for fresh and processed fruits and vegetables as well as nuts, snacks and other foods for both domestic consumption and export.”
