In August members of the Argentina Block Association (AABH) toured Glasser’s Vibrapac equipped plant before attending The Concrete Show in Sao Paul, Brazil. Claudio Defagot, President of the Argentina Block Association (AABH) and a loyal Besser customer who operates three Vibrapac plants and an Ultrapac plant in Argentina, wanted fellow producers to tour a production facility. He contacted Oriol Armadàs, our Regional Manager for South America, who arranged the tour so producers could have the opportunity to watch a state-of- the-art plant produce innovative concrete units.
The association members spent time in Glasser’s Besser-equipped plant watching the production of high quality concrete units. Oriol provided detailed information about the operation of the equipment, emphasizing the ability of the equipment to produce a wide variety of unique, value-added units. Armando Guglielmino, plant manager, also addressed the group. He’s operated the plant for 38 years and shared valuable insights gained throughout his tenure. His experience has greatly contributed to Glasser’s success in the marketplace and the efficient operation of the plant. He will be retiring at the end of the year and Oriol praised his passion for and contributions to the industry.
After the plant tour the group met inside the office and evaluated the existing concrete products and emerging trends. They agreed that the future growth and success for the industry is fuelled by tours like this which provides the venue for networking and learning from each other. We’d like to thank the staff at Glasser for graciously welcoming the AABH delegation and freely sharing their knowledge with the visiting producers. The producers are looking forward to applying what they learned to expand their product lines and improve their businesses in Argentina.
