New Equipment Acquisition Doubles Production Capability in Brazil
Américo do Brasil Sets new industry standard
ACWORTH, GA, September 2016 – Americo’s converting partner, Américo do Brasil is currently enjoying strong and sustained growth, selling the widest variety of floor pads on the market. Earlier this month the company announced the acquisition of a state-of-the-art cutting machine. This makes the company’s second cutting production line, doubling their cutting capability which has enhanced Américo do Brasil’s volumes overall. “We see service as a crucial element for our success in South America. This new cutting equipment will reduce delivery times and allow us to continue to serve our customers in this region, while exceeding their expectations”, said Giuliano Santin, Owner, Américo do Brasil.
The new production capacity ensures the company can meet the region’s sharply rising demand for years to come. Leonard Shutzberg, Chief Executive Officer, Americo Manufacturing Company, says, “In the last six years, our sales have steadily grown, and we’re seeing accelerated growth in the demand for our floor pads in Brazil and the other 70+ countries we serve. We can do this by collaborating with professional and flexible production partners like Américo do Brasil, who holistically shares our view of quality. I applaud the work that Américo do Brasil is doing in the South American market, as well as their decision to expand their infrastructure with equipment that will be essential to handle the growth in that region.”
