third office in Brazil for deugro
deugro Brasil Ltda. has opened a new office in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The location has been strategically selected to serve clients in the southeastern and central regions of Brazil, especially Minas Gerais.
deugro has strengthened its position on the Brazilian market over the last years by successfully completing turnkey projects in the mining, oil and gas, pulp and paper, as well as the power generation and distribution industries. The new office is another milestone underscoring the importance to serve clients across various industries in real time locally, and it allows deugro to take greater advantage of markets across southeastern Brazil.
The Belo Horizonte office opened at the end of March 2021 and is deugro’s third location in Brazil, besides the offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The focus is on serving clients with full project freight forwarding solutions primarily within the mining industry, but also in the agriculture, industrial, automotive and other industries. The office will be led by Mark Hollenstein, Regional Director, deugro Brasil Ltda., who has over 20 years of experience in the project forwarding industry and has been leading deugro’s Brazilian offices for nearly 10 years.
“deugro has had a presence in Brazil since 2008. To be able to particularly support our clients from the mining sector even better, we decided to establish a presence in the Brazilian mining capital Belo Horizonte,” explained Mark Hollenstein, Regional Director, deugro Brasil Ltda.
“This strategic decision to expand our local Brazilian network with the office in Belo Horizonte places our dedicated project team, based in the region, now even closer to our clients in southeastern Brazil.”
With recent strategic hires, strengthening deugro’s Brazilian team, deugro is deepening its footprint in the mining industry and expanding its presence in this important industry vertical further. This includes the new hire of Aliny Santos as Business Development Manager, who has been working in the mining industry and the Minas Gerais region for more than a decade and will complement deugro’s Sales and Business Development team.
