(Shelton, CT--August 14, 2012) Anton/Bauer
®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, has named AMTEC its authorized service center in Mexico. This new partnership underscores Anton/Bauer’s continued commitment to growth in Latin America, along with its dedication to providing high-level after-sales customer support.
“As one of our key distributers in Latin America, we have been working with AMTEC since the very beginning,” says Jose Flores, product specialist, Anton/Bauer. “We couldn’t be more pleased with how its core values align with those of Anton/Bauer—they mesh perfectly. We know AMTEC cares about its customers and wants to get them the right solutions. That’s how we operate as well.”
AMTEC was founded in 1991 with the purpose of promoting, selling, installing and servicing professional television equipment for the production and post-production markets at the broadcast and industrial level. Supporting local broadcasters such as TV Azteca and Televisa, AMTEC personnel in its sales, customer service, and technical support departments are dedicated to providing the fastest and most efficient service without compromising quality.
“Anton/Bauer offers our customers the most compatible camera batteries and chargers,” says Octavio Rios, AMTEC’s site director for production equipment. “Whether they are using a camera from Panasonic, Sony, Ikegami or JVC—Anton/Bauer has solutions to fit the cameras they are currently using or plan to use in the future.”
In addition to selling such Anton/Bauer power solutions as the DIONIC® 90, HC, HCX and HyTRON 140 batteries, as an authorized service center, AMTEC will be able to offer local customers the technical expertise necessary to help troubleshoot and keep gear updated and running at its best without having to spend additional resources or work with customer support outside the country.
“As the authorized support team here in Mexico, customers are going to feel more confident when selecting Anton/Bauer products—and they will understand the value beyond the cost of the batteries,” says Rios. “No other major battery manufacturer has that type of service in Mexico, so we are pleased to say that we can offer the necessary support to our customers. Sometimes a solution can be as simple as updating a charger’s software, so the customer doesn’t have to buy all new chargers—together with Anton/Bauer, we can help protect our customers’ investments.”
For Flores, the partnership between Anton/Bauer and AMTEC is a perfect match. “Working regularly with local videographers, directors of photography, production companies and other professionals, this new alliance truly gives both companies a stronger position in industry,” he says. “This partnership is based on communication and now we have a partner to share trends and also what’s going on in both regions. We look forward to things to come in the future and couldn’t be more pleased than to provide local support in Mexico.”
