By Laura Hatton06 December 2013

International heavy lift and transport company Mammoet has been awarded the Latin American Trade Award 2013 for its business activities in Latin America.

Mammoet has been active in Latin America for nearly thirty years and employs and educates local people, both at their local offices and at projects in remote areas like Punta Arenas, Chile, a company spokesperson said.

Christiaan Lavooij, managing director, said, “Industrial development is an important growth catalyst. Mammoet’s activities are focused on contributing to industrial productivity. We firmly believe that working with local people is not only to our own benefit, but it also contributes to local development.

“Latin America is becoming increasingly important to the global market. We are already working side by side with clients like Petrobras and Methanex to provide them with innovative and time-saving solutions, and we see a lot more business potential for this continent.

“We are very grateful for receiving this award and look forward to expanding business opportunities for the Netherlands in Latin America.”
