AMT-The Association For Manufacturing Technology Gains Presence in Brazil Through the Sao Paulo Technology Center

May 16, 2013 - McLean, Va. … With an industry that is growing in both size and diversity, Brazil is quickly becoming a global power in manufacturing. AMT-The Association For Manufacturing Technology is increasing its presence in this up-and-coming market with the opening of its AMT Sao Paulo Technology Center, located in the city of Sorocaba.

The Technology Center is where AMT members can establish operations within Brazil to build relationships and explore the market’s potential. Services include sales and marketing assistance for reaching customers in Brazil; HR services such as employee proxy hiring for sales, service, and engineering positions; office space for meeting with customers and prospects; field service support for your equipment in Brazil; and in-depth assistance for navigating Brazilian business practices. Other Tech Centers in the AMT portfolio are located in Mexico (Monterrey), China (Shanghai), and India (Chennai).

AMT recently appointed Achilles Arbex as General Manager of the Sao Paulo Technology Center. Arbex previously worked for Dana Industries and transmission manufacturer ZF, and is an expert on

the Brazilian manufacturing industry, including automotive, aerospace, electric and electronic, oil and gas, and alternative energy.

Brazil’s industrial economy has seen significant expansion in recent years, and the country has seen a period of sustained growth. The Brazilian government has implemented policies to expand its openness as a global trading partner, and its focus on increased exports has strengthened its manufacturing industry. 

“As U.S. manufacturing technology builders look to build global relationships, Brazil is a market of growing importance and a critical place for AMT members to establish a presence,” said Douglas K. Woods, AMT President. “We look forward to providing our members with a place to take some of their first steps into this market, and we are excited to see the possibilities that will come within Brazil.”

“We have confidence that Brazilian manufacturers will find U.S. manufacturing technology to be among the world’s best and most innovative,” said Mario Winterstein, AMT Business Development Director. “As Brazilian manufacturers strive to improve their productivity and efficiency, our members can provide them with the technology to become more competitive on a worldwide scale. We foresee a bright future for Brazil, and we are happy to be a part of it.”
