Marco Guerrero, General Manager at Sidgo Koppers Peru, a construction company in the EPC, construction and large-scale assembly industry, introduces us to Sigdo Koppers Engineering and Construction, its vision and services.
What are the origins of the company and how long have you been in Peru?
We have been in Peru since 1998, known as SSK, with 20 years of experience in various lines of business such as mining, energy and industry. The change of brand from SSK to SKIC is part of a corporate reorganization of the SKIC Group in Peru, which seeks to capture the maximum business opportunities that arise in the Peruvian market in EPC, construction and industrial assembly. Also, to optimize cost synergies with other SK Group companies in the country, seeking better complementarity and transfer of experience and personnel among our subsidiaries in Colombia, Brazil and our head office in Chile.
SKIC is part of the Sigdo Koppers S.A. Group, an outstanding Chilean business group with global presence that provides services and products to mining and industry, through leading companies such as Enaex, SK Rental, Magotteaux, and Dessau; among other companies with leading positions in their respective sectors. Our parent company, Ingeniería y Construcción Sigdo Koppers S. A. (SKIC Chile), founded in 1960, is a leading company in the large-scale construction and assembly industry, currently developing EPC projects.
