BUTTING in Brazil
Since 2009 another affiliated company is part of the BUTTING Group: BUTTING Brasil Soluções em Tubos Especiais Ltda. By opening a sales office in Rio de Janeiro / Brazil an important step was taken towards more presence in this promising country. Five years later we set a new milestone in this most populous country in South America: the construction of single part production.
Here we produced vessels, tanks and components ready for installation in corrosion resistant and clad materials. The location we chose is in the greater Joinville / Santa Catarina area, directly at one of the most important interstate highways of the country, right in the centre of a rapidly growing industrial area near Itajaí harbour.
For the commercial staff a training programme was provided at the main factory of BUTTING in Germany. The technical staff were qualified to suit the specific requirements of BUTTING in cooperation with the local education center SENAI.
Due to changing market conditions and new growth prospects, BUTTING is adjusting its structure on the American continent. At the moment the oil and gas industry in Brazil is right on the floor. As a result of the current crisis, BUTTING will cease production in Brazil at the end of the year 2016 and instead concentrate more on the marketing of production services of the manufacturing sites in Germany and China. The sales office in Brazil will continue to exist.
