While the major markets of the world are experiencing tremendous turmoil; especially in the construction sector, many smaller nations are finding this as an excellent time to welcome new products and construction amenities.

While the major markets of the world are experiencing tremendous turmoil; especially in the construction sector, many smaller nations are finding this as an excellent time to welcome new products and construction amenities.


Hernan Guembas, President of Aspiratek S.A.C of Miraflores, Peru recently found out how excited his new market was for central vacuums. Hernan entered an M.D. Manufacturing Central Vacuum unit into Peru's recent Trade Show contest for the Most Innovative Product of the Year. "Peru's interest in central vacuums is phenomenal," said Hernan, "Architects, builders and homeowners all were thrilled with the concept of healthy cleaning."

Peru's annual EXCON 2008, the country's largest construction trade show, is organized by CAPECO, the Peruvian Chamber for Construction in Peru and attracted more than 50,000 visitors this year. Hernan, a newer dealer of M.D. Manufacturing products knew the product would sell itself in a market which is quickly adapting to North American appliances.

Product launches into new markets are not easy but Hernan and his staff intended to make as grand of an early impression on the Peruvian market as possible. For his efforts, the show rewarded him with the "Best of the Show" Award, the show's top honor! Although the President of Peru was hoping to present the award, it was administered by Mr. Enrique Cornejo, Minister of Housing and Mr. Lelio Balarezo Young, President of the Peruvian Chamber of Construction.

Installations in the country are far different than North American construction because of the concrete block walls rather than wood or steel frame construction. Hernan's company, a long -time HVAC contractor, was well versed in the proper construction techniques and has easily adapted to the demands of the design.

Congratulations to Hernan Guembes and his staff at Thermotrol / Aspiratek for introducing Central Vacuums to Peru and having the Most Innovative Construction Product of the Year in Peru in 2008!
