In a joint press conference yesterday, Intelligrated (Booth 2900) and SDI Group USA (Booth 707) announced the launch of a new, co-owned and managed operation in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The two companies will combine their sales, engineering, project management, customer service and spare parts capabilities under one Brazilian company to provide in-country materials handling system solutions.

“Intelligrated is pleased to join forces with SDI Group to bring our material handling services and solutions to Brazilian customers. We see a void in the local marketplace for companies providing advanced sortation and palletizing systems, and we aim to fill that void,” said Stephen Ackerman, executive VP of Intelligrated.

“SDI Group has been operating in Brazil for more than five years, and partnering with a supplier like Intelligrated adds strength to our regional offering,” added Krish Nathan, president of SDI Group USA.

Ackerman and Nathan noted that Brazil has one of the most advanced industrial sectors in Latin America, with exports having nearly doubled and imports more than doubled over the last decade. SDI’s Marcelo Bueno, who has 15 years of technology implementation experience, will manage the facility.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
