The division, headquartered in Charlotte (NC), USA, manufactures high-quality agri-housing for poultry and swine producers in over 60 countries worldwide from facilities in China, Europe, and Malaysia.

Alberto joined Betco, Inc. in 2003 as a sales representative for Mexico. He came with credentials that demanded an understanding of the complexities of animal production and building systems in cold, moderate, and tropical locations. Much of his experience was in housing, ventilation and feeding design, and lately as designer and contractor for swine “turn-key” projects.

With Betco, sales representative Alberto was also providing independent technical support for the GSI Mexico dealer network.
