ISCO Industries has opened a new facility in Santiago, Chile, with plans to host an open house at the location.

The event takes place on April 23 2013 and runs from 10am to 2pm local time.

The new 500m² facility is situated on a 2ha lot. It houses a full line of McElroy fusion equipment and offers sales, training and repair of fusion machines.

"We looked at Chile over the last several years as a market with a lot of potential because of the increasing foreign investment, especially in the mining sector," said vice-president of international sales Ted Amaya. "Chile’s economy continues to grow. An ISCO Industries location in Chile positions us well to service our customers in the Latin American region."

"Mining is the entry point, but Chile’s economy is diversified," added Amaya. "There are opportunities in agriculture, power, geothermal and many other areas where ISCO’s products and services, and the quality that comes with those products and services, have the capacity to play an integral part in the growth of these industries."

The open house will include a speech from ISCO, a blessing of the facility and a showcase of ISCO’s capabilities in the region.

The address of the new location is: Panamericana Norte #20.378, Galpon 13, Lampa, Santiago, Chile.
