The Interview

In an interview with Jose de Jesus Castañeda Bañuelos, current CEO of Trucka, he mentioned the company’s growth plans, their projections and 2020 objectives. Here his answers.

BRAL. ¿What is the company’s vision for the next five years?

JC: In Trucka we have a business plan called “Vision 2020” which clearly defines the objectives of the company by sector.

      In broad terms we believe that in five years the company will double in size through organic growth and a clear plan of mergers and acquisitions.

      We can achieve this with the incursion into a private equity fund as a shareholder of the company to accelerate its growth. We hope to make our first debt issue in 2015, and in the not too distant future, become a public company.

 

BRAL. ¿What is your greatest success as the CEO of Trucka?

JC: Having managed to turn a family business into a corporate one by maintaining a stable and lasting relationship with all the members. And always knowing what you can expect from a family business.

 

BRAL. ¿What are some of your environmental policies?

JC: In Trucka we are concerned about the environment, every year we renew our vehicle fleet in order to have the most modern engines and to emit fewer pollutants. We have an R&D center in which we made great efforts to produce biodiesel and in analyzing the recycle process of used oil.

      Our organizational communications department sensitizes our staff in the proper use of resources, and in the use of environmental safety regulations in the workplace.

 

BRAL. ¿Are you planning to expand operations to other markets?

JC: In the coming years we see a consolidating phase in the domestic market. But so far we have not laid eyes on other international markets.
