"Now that the economy is picking up again in Brazil, we see a lot of business opportunities in Latin America," says Heikki Hiltunen, executive vice president of Vacon Group. "To serve our existing and new customers and partners even better, we have employed new personnel and moved our office in Barueri, São Paulo to new and larger premises."
Vacon's Brazil office was established in 2007. The new facility was opened in October with customers, cooperation partners and representatives of Vacon Group management in attendance.
"Our growing sales figures have increased the need for technical support. Now we are strengthening a technical support and service network in Brazil, and we will expand the network to cover the entire Latin America," says Claudio Luis Baccarelli, managing director, Vacon Latin America. "We also want to win a bigger share of the mining, pulp and paper and marine and offshore segments, and we are looking for partners in original equipment and original design manufacturer business. With a strong local team, we will be able to provide fast deliveries and high-quality support and services to our existing and new customers."
