SKIDATA: Changes in Chile




November 2017 marks the end of one era in Chile and the beginning of another as SKIDATA Latinoamérica Ltda. and an important local firm in the Car Access segment, Tecnopass SpA, are brought together to form a new entity called SKIDATA Chile SpA. This fusion automatically doubles the number of employees to 48 and it thus becomes the largest specialized firm in the Car Access and Tarification space, in Chile.


It is considered that the excellent install base of SKIDATA-equipped customers in Chile, including several regional key accounts plus the experience and best practices of Tecnopass in the Operational Services field, has formed an even stronger firm in this country that will allow SKIDATA to consolidate, continue growing and reach high profitability.

In parallel with this integration of the two firms, the General Manager position has been changed from Diego Sánchez to Tecnopass’s founder and General Manager, Juan Pablo Barriga.

After 9 years in South America, Diego has recently returned to Europe to join the team in the “new” SKIDATA France and I wish him and Juan Pablo much strength & success in their new positions within the SKIDATA family.
