Focused Technology Solutions (FTS), a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway Company, has entered a new market sector by partnering with LaTech Rail Technologies, a distributor with clients in Mexico.

LaTech will carry FTS’ flagship product, the SpikeEase battery-operated spike puller. LaTech—also with locations in British Columbia and Washington State—joins Canadian distributor Davanac as the second international reseller to carry the SpikeEase.

“Whenever we’re looking to expand into new markets, we want to find partners who share our passion to provide our customers with the best service possible,” said Peter Bartek, President, FTS. “We feel that LaTech Rail Technologies does just that and we’re excited to work with them.”

“I believe if you are not using the SpikeEase you are losing,” said Edgar Rivera, GM, LaTech. “You are losing safety, you are losing money through performance [by not using the SpikeEase]. We’re very happy and excited to be the first distributor of the SpikeEase to Latin America.”
