Growth as a global market leader?


Senior Vice President
(Service Division Vehicle Inspection)
Starting up in an established and competitive market for regular vehicle inspections in South America.

Even for DEKRA, the global market leader, there is room for expansion. In 2019, Chile presented itself as a unique opportunity. In three tenders DEKRA won four concessions in the Metropolitan Area of Santiago and in the South of Chile. Ten stations will perform half a million inspections over the next four years. “Our success owes itself to the collaboration between colleagues from the Service Division, the region, and corporate functions,” explains Marcos Sanchez, emphasizing that entering the Chilean market enables DEKRA to replicate this success. “We are now able to implement inspection operations very rapidly from scratch anywhere in the world.”
