Vacuum and pump technology company, Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has opened an office in Jundiai, Brazil. The location will operate as a local sales and service center. The company says the location will improve local assistance and response times, offer a range of services and diminish lead times.

"We continue to invest proactively in our regional markets," said Dr. Martin Füllenbach, CEO of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuums. "We believe in the growing demands of the emerging markets and the development of Brazil necessitates a closer and optimized customer-centered approach."

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has previously been present in the Brazilian market, but until recently, business was done via distributors and agents. In order to Brazil better, Oerlikon Leybold Vacuums said it decided to offer Latin America's countries a dedicated sales force and thus increase customer proximity.


"The very experienced team of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum Brazil will support our customers on sales, applications and service with the full product range for vacuum pumps, spare parts, couplings, valves, gauges and instruments. Brazilian market is very focused on industrial processes, and we know that Oerlikon Leybold has the right product and expertise for our customer needs. Staying close to customers, understanding their needs, strong service performance and local stock are the keys for the business growth in South America," said Ricardo Toshiro of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum Brazil.

The Brazil workshop will also have enough space to assemble single vacuum components to complex vacuum solutions. The company will be able to provide standardized or fully customized vacuum solutions in-house.
