Lift Technologies Inc., a leading global supplier of front end equipment for lift trucks and rough terrain forklifts, is pleased to announce the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Indaiatuba, Brazil. The location is approximately 90 minutes from Sao Paulo and near many of the major lift truck OEM’s operating in Brazil.
The 2,000 square meter plant is a new facility which is equipped with welding robots, a bending press, a waterjet burn table along with a powder coat paint system. Modular tooling allows complete flexibility in the mast product offering available. The plant is building complete masts and other front end equipment for the material handling industry as well as other weldments and components required in the local marketplace that will utilize the plants expertise.
"Lift Tek Brazil is manufacturing masts stamped 'Made in Brazil", CEO Konrad Ostmeier recently noted. "The savings to material handling companies operating in Brazil are significant when the sourcing of some of the major portions of the lift truck can be localized. Speed to market is also another key advantage with the new Lift Tek plant so close to many of the major players in the lift truck market".
Lift Technologies global customers have operations in Brazil, so making the commitment to service them locally with a dedicated mast manufacturing plant was a natural extension of these existing long term business relationships. While Mr. Ostmeier acknowledges conditions are currently challenging in the local marketplace, he also remarks "the long term growth potential is significant once the market turns".
