Combilift wins Brazilian contract
23 January 2013
Combilift has won a major contract valued at 600,000 Euros to supply four forklifts to Brazil's largest steel producer Gerdau. The announcement was made during a recent Enterprise Ireland trade mission to Brazil, aimed
A key factor in securing the contract was Combilift's proven ability to customise its products and thereby meet Gerdau's strict requirements for safety, operator comfort and operational productivity.
"Winning this business with Gerdau is hugely significant for Combilift both in its own right and also for positioning the company to further extend its reach into the wider Latin American market," said MD Martin McVicar. "Our customised approach to manufacturing has enabled us to sell 14,000 units in 50 countries to date, and we now look forward to increasing our presence in the Brazilian market."
