Chicago, Ill.-The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) welcomed two new distributor members in the first quarter of 2012.
Importadora Gutierrez, S.R.L. (Santo Domingo, D.N., Dominican Republic) Importadora Gutierrez was founded in 1979 to serve the needs of the Caribbean region's expanding agricultural industry.

Although the company's main markets are the Dominican Republic and Haiti, it also fully services Central America and the Caribbean. Company general manager Ricardo Gutierrez said, "Through our PTDA membership, we are looking to expand our servicing capabilities by acquiring know-how from PTDA's training. We also hope to establish new, lasting relationships with customers searching for quality products and services in our region."
