Haestad Methods expands local presence in Mexico

Haestad Methods, a provider of water resources modeling software, announced the expansion of its local presence in Queretaro, Mexico.

WATERBURY, Conn., Dec. 2, 2003 -- Haestad Methods, a provider of water resources modeling software, announced the expansion of its local presence in Queretaro, Mexico. The formation of this latest international office follows the opening of similar operations by Haestad Methods in Australia and China.

"Haestad Methods has demonstrated a successful track record in Mexico for over 10 years," said Andres Gutierrez, Regional Director for Haestad Methods, Latin America. "This company has provided its customized software solutions, localized training courses, and technical services to the nation's largest water utilities serving Mexico City, Guadalajara, Puebla, and Queretaro among others. The opening of this office is an important commitment for Haestad Methods to better serve the evolving needs of its Mexican clients."

With the approval of the Mexican Hydraulic National Program 2001-2006, issued by the National Commission of Water (CNA), there is urgency by the Mexican government to improve the country's hydraulic infrastructure and the productivity and efficiency of water systems. Haestad's products and services, such as WaterCAD® and SewerCAD® for water and sewer system design and analysis, will continue to be used by the local utilities to help meet these goals.

Mexican customers have already expressed enthusiasm over the company's expansion to this region. "The support of Haestad Methods is the best I have experienced from any other software company," said Virgilio Gallardo, IT Manager for SIAPA-Guadalajara. "Now, with a local office in Mexico, we expect to develop an even stronger business relationship."

Cesar O. Puga Garcia leads the sales and marketing initiatives for Mexico from the Queretaro-based office. He brings to Haestad Methods an established local knowledge of the water recourses industry and a solid background for executing a comprehensive business strategy for this unique environment. Cesar previously worked for the Federal Commission of Electricity specializing in hydraulic engineering. He received his B.S. in civil engineering from the Technological Institute of Tepic, Mexico, and his M.S. in hydraulics from the Autonomous University of Queretaro, Mexico.
