Agency/Regional representative/Industrievertretung
Explanation:
Industrievertretung ist Teil des Eigennamens der Firma, deshalb sollte es im Original verbleiben, man kann aber eine Uebersetzung als Anmerkung des Uebersetzers in Klammern anbieten. Ich wuerde es mit "Industry Representative" uebersetzen.

Industrievertretung (=part of company name?) or...


Explanation:
In your sentence, the position of the term after your XXX allows the possibility that this may still be part of the company's name (depending on how the XXX part is forumulated).

Otherwise, Industrie... often translates as (and means) _manufacturing_ (if adressing the manufacturing sector) or _manufacturers_ (if representing manufacturers): manufacturers representative.

Nice context! :-)
