BRANCHBURG, N.J. — Kinedyne Corporation has joined the relief efforts of its primary distribution partner, Epysa Implementos, in earthquake-rocked Chile.

Initiated by Epysa, as well as several other companies and members of the local trucking community, the effort will bring supplies to Constitucion, a particular area of the VII and VIII region and one of the most devastated cities in the country. The relief effort will be coordinated by Juan Francisco Novion, general director of Epysa Implementos and Epysa Club. This initiative will provide truckers and their families who were directly impacted by the disaster with basic necessities including food and thermal blankets.

“Kinedyne has been doing business in Chile for more than 12 years, so we understand the people and we were greatly moved by their plight in the aftermath of this disaster.” said Amador Garcia, Kinedyne’s director of sales for Latin America. “This relief effort organized by our friends at Epysa seemed like an ideal opportunity for us to help the people impacted by this tragic event.”
