In this relatively short time, results have already surpassed initial projections: the best has been taken of the diverse regional cultures and integrated into a single one; synergies have been leveraged to increase efficiency, consolidate processes and achieve significant savings; and best practices have been taken from each country and replicated across the company’s operations, thus building a win-win scenario.
Currently, a third of the company’s revenues comes from outside Mexico, geographically diversifying its portfolio and diluting risks. During 2018, the growth shown in South America served to reduce the effects of the contraction in Mexico. Going forward, Grupo Lamosa sees great opportunities to grow and increase productivity in the region, which is why an important part of the investments made in 2018 was concentrated there.
Grupo Lamosa’s discipline and financial strength, combined with the experience gained in acquisition and integration processes, constitute an important platform that will enable the replication of this successful model in the future and the leveraging of new opportunities to continue expanding operations outside Mexico.
