Howden, a global provider of mission critical air and gas handling products, technologies and services, has opened a new service centre in Vitória City, Espírito Santo state, Brazil, to expand its presence and support in South America.
The new service centre complements Howden’s existing factory in Itatiba, São Paulo, while providing dedicated support for its customers in Vitória, according to the company. Situated in proximity to its customers, the service centre provides 24-hour access to equipment procurement, technical assistance and aftermarket services, as well as support from Howden experts, it said.
Howden has been present in Brazil for 28 years as a hub for South America. The new service centre will support Howden’s strategy to grow across wastewater, energy & renewables, metals, cement, and industrial sectors within the region.
Salvador Soares, Managing Director of Howden’s South America business, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new service centre in Brazil to meet increasing customer demand and build upon our growth in South America. It is a testament to the strong customer relationships that we have nurtured, as well as our reputation for delivering valuable expertise and support.
“The new service centre offers greater efficiency for our customers and rapid access to additional engineering, parts, and aftermarket services. By streamlining delivery times from several months to only a few hours, we can respond to short lead times to minimise downtime and ensure project delivery.”
