Cooper serves customers in Latin America directly through our offices in Villahermosa, Mexico, and Bogota, Columbia, as well as through our Spanish-speaking engineering, sales, and field service support in Latin America and the United States. Cooper also has an extensive distributor network throughout South America and the Caribbean.

Cooper’s Houston, Texas global central distribution center maintains and creates all NAFTA documentation and has extensive inventory to ensure same-day shipment of parts in emergency situations.

Proven Results

A Bolivia-based Cooper-Bessemer GMV owner recently needed to bring his 10-cylinder integral engine-compressor up to full strength. Our Latin American team and service crew executed the tear down on site and completed a full top-end overhaul utilizing all OEM Cooper power pistons, power liners, and re-worked heads. Our team re-commissioned the unit and ran appropriate tests prior to project close-out. Our Cooper-Bessemer GMV overhaul came in on-time and under budget, and our Latin American service personnel excelled at exceeding customer needs and expectations.
