BRANDT has acquired a factory for producing its specialty formulations products in Brazil. The acquisition — and subsequent plant renovation — represents a multi-million Real investment.
The 22,000 m² factory is located on approximately 7 hectares (70 thousand m²) of land, in the metropolitan region of Londrina (PR). The site will ultimately house multiple assembly lines, significant finished product storage, a quality control lab and an experimental station for research and development of new products.
The factory is expected to be active in two years. The investment, according to BRANDT do Brasil president, Wladimir Chaga, quadruples BRANDT’s production capacity in the country. The company will keep its plant in Olímpia (SP) active, which is strategically located for access to the Cerrado and the Port of Santos.
“In Olímpia, we will focus on dry products, while the new plant will be the hub for other, more specialized, products in our portfolio. This important investment will allow the manufacturing, on Brazilian soil, of foliar fertilizers with American technology,” explained Chaga.
