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 produce 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.
With the new BUTTING presence it is intended to also offer "prefabrication" on the Brazilian market. For the time being the main focus of this plant will be the production of prefabricated pipelines and components for the oil and gas industry, of course taking into account the relevant production processes and quality standards necessary.
