Mexico City/Taufkirchen, 1 March 2021 – Like many nations across the world, defence and security forces in Latin America rely on HENSOLDT security solutions to protect people and infrastructure in their respective countries. HENSOLDT is pursuing a clearly defined growth strategy for this market. HENSOLDT is gearing up to better position itself on this market and opens a branch in Mexico City.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, HENSOLDT has managed to open a branch in Mexico City. The branch is operating officially since February 2021 under the leadership of Edgar Montes Lopez as the office responsible and Stefan Billep, Head of Sales in Latin America. This is an important step forward to grow HENSOLDT’s accessible market and increase customer intimacy.

HENSOLDT considers Mexico as an attractive sizeable market that can be successfully addressed with the current portfolio. Through this office, HENSOLDT will expand its market reach into Central America and the Caribbean. The company plans to gradually extend its presence to the whole region. From the own HENSOLDT offices in Brazil, Chile and now Mexico, HENSOLDT will expand its network and the strategic collaborations with local Industries.


HENSOLDT is a German champion in the defence industry with a leading market position in Europe and global reach. The company, headquartered in Taufkirchen near Munich, develops sensor solutions for defence and security applications. As a technology leader, HENSOLDT is also continuously expanding its portfolio in cyber and developing new products to combat a wide range of threats based on innovative approaches to data management, robotics and cybersecurity.
