Putzmeister Brazil Ltda. Builds Its First Vehicle-Mounted Series Line PumpSTURTEVANT, WI (August 10, 2010) – Putzmeister Brazil, Ltda. (PMB), a subsidiary of Putzmeister America. Inc., is celebrating its first vehicle-mounted series (VS) line pump built at its Atibaia, Brazil factory. The owner of the VS unit is Estatec Concrete Pumping.
Recently opening its doors to the Brazilian market and its customers, PMB will soon start production on its first truck-mounted boom pump and City Pump.
PMB offers various products and services including new equipment, spare parts inventory, after sales support and a facility for operator and maintenance training. In addition, the company also provides refurbishment services of customer-owned equipment.
Putzmeister America was given full responsibility in June 2007 for the Brazilian market from its parent company Putzmeister Concrete Pumps GmbH. Expanding with PMB was strategic in adding to the continued growth of the Putzmeister Group in the Latin American region.
“Putzmeister Brazil is supported locally by the experienced Latin America sales staff, in addition to the engineers and customer support group of Putzmeister America,” says Marc Aguilar, Putzmeister America’s vice president – sales for Latin America and the Caribbean (LACA). “We have made a long-term commitment to Brazil’s construction industry. Putzmeister has been supplying Brazil with the highest quality and technologically advanced products for many years and by establishing our local assembly and service of products we continue to reinforce that we will be around for a long time.”
Since its opening, PMB has successfully surpassed its sales goals and sold equipment for many high profile projects including the Belo Monte Hydroelectric project located in the state of Pará, Brazil, which will be the third largest hydroelectric plant in the world once complete.
PMB is lead locally by Edson Oliveira as general manager. Oliveira has been in the concrete and construction business for more than 28 years and has worked with Putzmeister for over 10 years. He can be contacted via phone: 55 11 4412-1155 or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
