Legacy Building Solutions has opened a new satellite office in Santiago, Chile.
The office gives the company a stronger presence in the emerging Latin America market for mining, industrial warehousing, fertiliser storage, aviation, military, athletics and other building applications.
Legacy’s executive director of the company’s Chilean office Francisco Anguita said: "Legacy is committed to providing a high level of service to our Latin American customers to match our superior engineering and building techniques.
"We will continue to provide the most structurally sound fabric structures on the market and we look forward to meeting the evolving challenges of the industries and clients we serve."
The company has completed recent fabric building projects in Chile, including Rockwood Lithium, the La Negra sector in Antofagasta, and Lomas Bayas Mining, Sierra Gorda sector in Atacama.
Industry professionals in Latin America can learn more about Legacy Building Solutions during the Exponor mining exhibition, which be held from 11 to 15 May, in Antofagasta, Chile, and at the EXTEMIN mining technology exhibition, 21 to 25 September, in Arequipa, Peru.
Legacy Building Solutions president Ben Fox said: "We are extremely pleased to begin this new venture in Chile and are especially excited that Francisco Anguita will be leading our team to success throughout Latin America.
"Expanding our global reach is a necessary step in our business development as the popularity of our fabric building engineering continues to grow. We are dedicated to constant innovation and delivering the best customer service in the industry."
Legacy is the first manufacturer to create tension fabric buildings on structural I-beams. This rigid-frame engineering concept provides a higher level of design flexibility, enabling users to specify the exact dimensions and building accessories they require.
The company’s fabric buildings feature durable polyethylene or PVC fabric with high translucency that allows buildings to be filled with natural light.
