The Endress+Hauser Group has strengthened its position in the South American market. The Swiss specialist for measurement engineering has invested over 8 million € in a new production facility for flow, level and pressure measuring instruments in Brazil. The plant in Itatiba, around 100 km north of São Paulo, has now been inaugurated. Modern infrastructure and production lines were installed on around 4300 m2 of floor space (Fig.). The site is 18 000 m2 in total, offering plenty of room for further expansion.
“Regional production in China, India, the US and most recently Brazil allows us to serve our customers anywhere in the world fast and flexibly,” explains Klaus Endress, CEO of the Group. Endress+Hauser has operated in Latin America’s biggest country, Brazil, for over three decades. Development took off with the establishment of the Group’s sales center in 2003.
