Slow recovery in machinery sales
Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.- Low machinery sales in the city show that the economic rebound remains contained, according to data from dealerships.
Ines de la Peņa Villela, Manager of the local branch of Maquinaria Sociedad Anonima, said that sales in every industrial sector remain very low when compared to 2007, the year of the economic boom.
Ms. Peņa, head of the dealership that sells leader brands such as Caterpilar, Massey Ferguson and Challenger, said that except for agriculture machinery, all the other fields remain on bottom and stagnated.
She said that, for example, in the infrastructure sector sales in Juarez are barely 20% of 2007 figures.
In the construction sector, she said, the drop has been 95%, which means it is working at barely 5% of its capacity.
