Despite the protracted slump in copper prices in the last few years, mining remains the backbone of Chile’s economy. And in order to improve and thrive, mining requires the support of several other industries, one of which is engineering.
Established by Alejandro Figueroa in 2000, FDA Ingenieros, grew quickly between 2005 and 2012. While it struggled during the downturn a few years ago like many mining companies, FDA Ingenieros has since recovered, having secured contracts from Antofagasta Minerals and other companies.
“We responded and acted quickly. When a client needs changes, we make those changes happen. We are fully focused on our clients,” said the company founder and CEO.
This focus on the customer has earned FDA Ingenieros the reputation as a cost-effective and high-quality solutions provider. Looking to the future, Figueroa hopes to work with more Japanese companies in the mining sector, particularly in the field of automation.
Backed by 16 years of success in the industry and its founder’s more than 25 years of experience, FDA Ingenieros is prepared to assist Japanese companies enter the Latin America market through Chile.
“We can take their hand and we can walk together,” Figueroa said.
