Morgato will be responsible for further developing BluePrint Automation in South America to include new customers, markets and the starting of a new office in Brazil with local field service.
In regards to his new opportunity, he says: “This is a very good moment for the secondary packaging automation in South America due to the development of the region and the consciousness about ergonomic issues for the operators. South America is a huge market and BluePrint will explore its potential as much as possible.”
