Rema Tip Top, a global provider of services and products in the field of conveying and treatment technology as well as tire repair, acquired Norte Sul Serviços de Vulcanização, a conveyor maintenance provider in Brazil. Through the acquisition, Rema Tip Top increased its global footprint and is now present in Brazil with a wholly-owned subsidiary.
“The acquisition complements our service focus very well,” said Thorsten Wach, CEO of Rema Tip Top. “The takeover strengthens our position as a full solutions provider. It extends our global service team, while it also marks an important step in our expansion strategy in growth markets. It ensures a nation-wide coverage in Brazil with service and stocking locations in Sao Paulo, Canaã dos Carajás, Nova Lima, Vitoria and Belo Horizonte.”
With a strong team of service technicians, engineers and specialists around the world, Rema Tip Top offers customer-oriented services on six continents. The service teams focus on improving system availability by increasing operational readiness and prolonged system lifetime. These goals are ideally aligned with those of Norte Sul Serviços as a sophisticated conveyor maintenance business in Brazil, noted Rema Tip Top. The joint organization will be particularly well positioned to meet the rising expectations of its customers.
Rema Tip Top will provide the new Brazilian subsidiary with financial, project management, engineering, product and service resources. The local project team will be supported by the Rema Tip Top global response team of experienced engineers from the service competence centers in Germany, the rest of Europe, South Africa, Australia, Chile and Brazil. Via Norte Sul Serviços, the company will also introduce its service processes and technologies to the Brazilian market, including the innovative Rema M³ remote monitoring system.
Rafael Mashiba, managing director of Norte Sul Serviços, said: “The new partnership offers Norte Sul Serviços access to a broad network of experts as well as global resources, technologies and financial strength of the Rema Tip Top group, allowing us to provide our customers in Brazil with even better and more professional services.”
