Andrea Ramirez Leon

Peachtree City, GA - MetalTech-USA, a distributor of sheet, coil, and finished architectural metal systems, is expanding into the Latin American market.

With LEED and Green Building projects on the rise, President Nils Simonsen has identified business opportunities for MetalTech-USA south of the border.  Simonsen noted, “the market development for LEED and other green building initiatives in Latin America is still coming forth and we hope to get in on the ground floor. By utilizing our EcoChoice™ materials and efficient cladding systems, we seek to introduce the sustainability component of our growing value proposition to our current and future customers in Latin America.”

This new undertaking will be facilitated by the newest addition to the MetalTech-USA team, Andrea Ramirez Leon, in the position of In-house Legal Counsel.  Ramirez Leon holds dual degrees in law from Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico and Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, allowing her to practice in both the United States and Mexico. She will work alongside MetalTech-USA’s growing sales team in expanding the business and positioning the company as a specialty fabricator of architectural systems for high-end metals in the Latin American market. Working closely with architects and specifiers, Ramirez Leon will acquaint them with the latest useful information regarding architectural metals and systems, providing additional tools and ideas to incorporate into their creative work.

Relative to her new appointment, Ramirez Leon noted, “I appreciate and welcome the opportunity to combine and apply my years of experience working as a business attorney in Mexico with my more recently acquired academic credentials in US law. MetalTech-USA’s success in the Latin American market will undoubtedly translate in enriching my career and I’m excited to face the day-to-day challenges of working in this dynamic, emerging market.” Ramirez Leon’s diverse professional experience, in conjunction with her multicultural background and proficiency in different languages such as English, Spanish, and Portuguese, will enable her to act as a liaison between MetalTech-USA and its Latin American clients. “By acting as a bridge to facilitate the communication between our customers in Latin America and MetalTech-USA, my hope is that in addition to loving our products, our clients feel 100% satisfied with our customer service because we not only speak their professional language but also their native one.”
