Janel opens offices in Honduras, Guatemala
Janel World Trade Ltd. said it is opening offices in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and Guatemala City, Guatemala.
“During the past three years, our Los Angeles office has been aggressively driving our expansion in the Central American region, increasing brand recognition and forging strategic partnerships with customers,” said James N. Jannello, chief executive officer of the New York-based company. “We have now reached a level of market penetration that justifies our decision to brand the Janel Group in Guatemala and Honduras. We are very close to a similar deal in El Salvador, and are very excited about the advantages these developments can deliver to our company and its shareholders in coming years.”
“Since the signing and implementation of the CAFTA-DR free trade agreement, many of our customers who were buying and manufacturing in Asia have approached us about creating an integrated program from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that includes customs clearance, expertise on the CAFTA-DR free trade agreement for American importers, freight services and electronic solutions to supply chain management,” noted Vincent Iacopella, managing director at Janel in Los Angeles.
