Nynas opens new office in Colombia

On 1 November 2016 Nynas opened a new sales office in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

Following decades of political unrest, the situation in Colombia has stabilised. There is healthy growth and the country now has a diverse, strong economy with well-developed industry. 

Nynas has been selling naphthenic speciality oils to customers in Colombia for more than 15 years. Behind the decision to open a sales office is the ambition to improve local service, but also to provide a general boost to its presence in northern South America and Central America. This means that the new office will also be serving customers in countries including Ecuador, Venezuela and Trinidad & Tobago.

Working at the new office as a Sales Executive, Lina María Zuluaga Cano is an electrical engineer with extensive international experience of transformer design and sales.

“This new office enables us to work more closely with our customers and visit them far more often than before,” she says.

The existing customer service team with Martin Vergara and Juan Pablo Pace will continue to provide service and support from the Buenos Aires office.

Nynas traditionally holds a particularly strong position in the field of transformer oils. In 2017 there will also be activities to increase its presence in other product areas.

“Our ultimate goal is to increase sales and improve service in the areas of lubricants as well as tyre oils and the chemicals industry, while also reinforcing our presence in the electrical industry, where we’ve long been a well-known supplier. This will be achieved by such means as working more closely with electricity companies and industry organisations,” says Ana Cura, Regional Director Nynas Americas.
