Baker Products, ( has appointed Puma Forest Products, in Parral, Chihuahua, as their representative in northern Mexico. Headed by Mario Valdez, Puma has been a Baker customer for nearly ten years, informally promoting their products in the past. Mike McNail, President of Baker, said the decision was made due to a combination of increased interest in Baker products in the area, along with a strong desire by Mr. Valdez to formalize their working relationship. He went on to explain, Mr. Valdez has been an asset to Baker for several years. His energy and enthusiasm for our products, as well as his location and standing in the industry made this an easy decision for us.

Puma Forest Products operates two milling operations in northern Mexico. The expansion to promote Baker there is a natural progression for Mr. Valdez, who has been instrumental in previously selling several Baker machines to other mills in the area. Baker will provide promotional materials in Spanish, as well as technical manuals and information. Puma Forest products will stock service parts and blades on site, and will also offer Baker factory-trained service technicians to better support current and future Baker customers. Mr. Valdez said, I originally purchased Baker for my own operations because I thought they were the best. After using them for nearly a decade, I now believe that even more, and I am excited about this new opportunity to represent Baker and be a part of their growth in Mexico.

Baker will continue the expansion of their sales network in Mexico, and is currently reviewing prospective agents in the southern part of the country. While weve had great success in the our own country and around the world. says McNail, weve never focused on a region outside of the U.S. We see a growth opportunity in our neighbor to the south, and feel confident we can serve them well.
