Samco Roll Forming Machinery Welcomed South of the Border

TORONTO--(Marketwire - August 15, 2008) - Samco Machinery opened their new Spanish website and is breaking into the market south of the border, especially in Mexico and Colombia. Manufacturers of roll form equipment for the metal construction industry, automotive industry and many other customized industries, Samco has its sights set on being the world's leading roll forming systems manufacturer.

According to Joseph P. Reprovs, Samco's CEO, "Waiting for the world to come to us was not an option... we had to go out to the world," and have since broke into the global market with a variety of strategies. Along with their opening the Spanish website, Samco recently had two overseas ventures. One was with Tata Motors, the maker of the NANO car in India. The other was a global alliance with Formia Tech Oy, a Finnish company. They are holding true to their vision and their strategy in positioning them globally.

This vision of offering customers world-class products within a broad portfolio of products along with having a local presence was partially inspired by Thomas Friedman. Friedman's book, "The World is Flat," talks about globalization and how countries are dependent on being in the global economy if they are to compete.

This philosophy is so entrenched in Samco Machinery's philosophy regarding creating world-class roll forming machinery, Bob Reprovs, President of Samco Machinery, Ltd., presented his ideas to a group of business owners, bankers and the EDC (Export Development Canada). His topic focused on how to create business ventures overseas.

At a time when other Canadian companies are struggling, Samco is expanding their sights on global markets. With the realities of global competition, Samco's management has faced the rivalry with the execution of an international strategy that is allowing their roll forming machine and other products to successfully compete worldwide.

One of the reasons, besides offering a quality product, for the success in the worldwide market is positioning their company with global partners. Samco is not looking for just any company to partner with; their partners must have the key components of dedication and the same ethical and business values as Samco's founders, the Reprovs family.
