Snorkel has appointed Latteps as its official distributor for Latvia.
Latteps was established in 1991 and is based in Riga, it provides a wide range of speciality services to the oil & gas industry, as well as transport infrastructure and construction work. As the company has not operated an equipment distribution before, it organised factory product training for key staff, and recruited Elina Kavinska as sales manager dedicated to the Snorkel products. During that factory visit Latteps chief business development officer Arturs Kavinskis signed the distribution agreement. The company also placed initial stock orders for machines and a stock of replacement parts.
Snorkel territory manager for Scandinavia Henrik Skibsted said: “With Latteps, Snorkel is entering the Latvian market with a very strong and well established partner. They have already been working closely with our existing Estonian and Finnish distributor and have a thorough understanding and familiarity of the aerial lift market. I am confident in their ability to grow this market and to become a successful distributor of Snorkel products.”
Arturs Kavinskis added: “We are impressed by Snorkel’s complete product line which enables us to target a wide range of customers and sectors, presenting a substantial business opportunity. Additionally, we are confident in Snorkel’s very high product quality and excellent customer support, which aligns with our own company ethos and standards. I am excited to begin this partnership and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial working relationship between our companies.”
