Snorkel is very pleased to announce the appointment of LATTEPS as its new official distributor for Latvia.

During a visit to Snorkel’s European manufacturing facility based in Washington, Tyne & Wear, U.K. in July, which also included initial product training, the official distributor agreement was signed by LATTEPS Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO), Arturs Kavinskis.

LATTEPS, who are based in Riga, Latvia, were founded in 1991 and have more than 20 years’ experience delivering industrial construction services in the oil and gas, industrial and civil engineering sectors. They offer a range of construction services, including the design, construction and restoration of oil chemical and oil processing facilities, as well as the assembly, restoration and commissioning of complex industrial projects.

LATTEPS also undertake the construction of infrastructure projects, such as roads, railways, port terminals and bridges. Additional services include the supply and installation of new oil chemistry technology for oil refineries and pipelines, and the company also specializes in advanced technology anti-corrosion protection, which can be applied to all types of industrial and civil objects.

They recently appointed Elina Kavinska as Sales Manager, dedicated to the sales and market development for Snorkel lifts in the country.

Henrik Skibsted, Territory Manager for Scandinavia for Snorkel, said, “With LATTEPS, Snorkel is entering the Latvian market with a very strong and well-established partner.  They have already been working closely with our existing Estonian and Finnish distributor and have a thorough understanding and familiarity of the aerial lift market. I am confident in their ability to grow this market and to become a successful distributor of Snorkel products.”

Upon signing the contract, LATTEPS CBDO, Arturs Kavinskis added, “We are impressed by Snorkel’s complete product line which enables us to target a wide range of customers and sectors, presenting a substantial business opportunity. Additionally, we are confident in Snorkel’s very high product quality and excellent customer support, which aligns with our own company ethos and standards. I am excited to begin this partnership and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial working relationship between our companies.”
