Legacy Building Solutions, a designer, installer and manufacturer of tension fabric buildings, has opened a new satellite office in Santiago, Chile. The new location gives the company a stronger foothold in the emerging Latin America market for mining, industrial warehousing, fertilizer storage, aviation, military, athletics and other building applications.

"Legacy is committed to providing a high level of service to our Latin American customers to match our superior engineering and building techniques," said Francisco Anguita, executive director of Legacy’s Chilean office.

"We will continue to provide the most structurally sound fabric structures on the market, and we look forward to meeting the evolving challenges of the industries and clients we serve."

The company has completed recent fabric building projects in Chile: Rockwood Lithium, La Negra sector in Antofagasta, and Lomas Bayas Mining, Sierra Gorda sector in Atacama.

Industry professionals in Latin America can learn more about Legacy Building Solutions during the Exponor mining exhibition, 11 to 15 May, in Antofagasta, Chile, and at the EXTEMIN mining technology exhibition, 21 to 25 September, in Arequipa, Peru.

"We are dedicated to constant innovation and delivering the best customer service in the industry."

"We are extremely pleased to begin this new venture in Chile, and are especially excited that Francisco Anguita will be leading our team to success throughout Latin America," said Ben Fox, president of Legacy Building Solutions.

"Expanding our global reach is a necessary step in our business development as the popularity of our fabric building engineering continues to grow. We are dedicated to constant innovation and delivering the best customer service in the industry."

Legacy Building Solutions is the first manufacturer to create tension fabric buildings on structural I-beams. This rigid-frame engineering concept provides a higher level of design flexibility, enabling users to specify the exact dimensions and building accessories they require. Legacy fabric buildings feature durable polyethylene or PVC fabric with high translucency that allows buildings to be filled with natural light.

To date, Legacy’s in-house, professional installation crews have constructed more than 30 million square feet of fabric buildings.
