New office in Rio

The founding of our branch office in Brazil in 2009 showed BUTTING taking another step towards globalisation by setting up a sales base in the most populous state in South America. Last month our Brazilian team moved to a new office in the centre of Rio de Janeiro – very close to our major customers.

After almost three years of sales activities in Brazil, we can see that this location decision was correct: We have become an important pipe supplier, inter alia for the Brazilian oil and gas industry. In particular, high-quality pipe products are increasingly in demand from this industry in the regional marketplace. There are specific needs, for example, for metallurgically clad and mechanically lined pipes (BuBi® pipes) produced to the tightest tolerances, and nickel alloy pipes.

The regional customers are also enthusiastic about our technological skills.
A tried and tested sales team backs them up in their projects:
Alexander Fischer worked in Knesebeck for many years and prepared intensively in the parent plant for his commercial sales activities.
After his studies of technology, Tiago Kaspary gained his initial professional experience at Petrobras and has produced a large number of well-founded scientific reports. Today he supports our customers in challenging projects with his technological understanding and specialist knowledge.

In recent years, our Brazilian team has supported a variety of major projects from the Brazilian oil and gas industry, for example for P55 and Subsea 7. Tiago Kaspary explains: “We are the bridge between our local customers and the technical managers in Knesebeck.” With this local support, BUTTING can communicate more directly and quickly with its customers and coordinate technical issues. “In this way we can take on the individual demands of our customers in Brazil”, is how Alexander Fischer defines his task.
