MIAMI, (March 15, 2012)—ContiTech North America has signed Conabelt USA, a distributor of engineered rubber products, to distribute its industrial V-belts into Latin America, concentrating on exporters from the U.S.
Conabelt USA is owned and operated by Jose R. Rodriguez Sr. A native of Venezuela, he has more than 40 years experience in rubber products, Conabelt said.
Conabelt will be the sole outlet for ContiTech with Miami-based exporters.
Rodriguez said his firm's location in southern Florida and inventory of the most commonly used V-belts enables it to rapidly service most points in the Latin American and USA markets. “Our partnership with ContiTech will help both of us to significantly increase our market presence in these areas,” he said.
ContiTech is a division of Germany's Continental A.G.
