Mold-Masters, the manufacturer of hot runner systems, mould bases and temperature controllers based in Canada, has expanded its production facility in Brazil and added new equipment, including CNC machining centres. This investment is intended to significantly increase Mold-Masters’ capabilities in the growing Brazilian market.
Mold-Masters is not new to the Brazilian plastics market, having opened the manufacturing facility in Sumaré, São Paolo state, in 2001 to better serve local and global customers. Since then, the company has seen its business there escalate, the rapid growth being driven by unprecedented product demand. The new facility expansion will enable Mold-Masters to continue to grow its business while enhancing value delivered to the rapidly developing Brazilian market.
Mold-Masters, as vertically integrated as any hot runner manufacturer in the world, can now provide not only exceptional regional support in Brazil but also enhanced local assistance for technical service, application engineering and rapid spare parts deployment.
“With our focused commitment to providing solutions, service and support globally, together with the economic growth in Brazil and South America, the facility and services expansion will provide the local, regional and global support needed to meet our customers’ needs in Brazil,” explains Douglas Hugo, Mold-Masters’ VP of sales and service for the Americas.
“This manufacturing expansion, paired with a new global quality standard on manufacturing processes of hot runner systems, mould bases, and temperature controllers, shows how important the Brazilian and South American market is for Mold-Masters,” adds Robson Gonçalves, operations manager for Mold Masters Brazil.
