InoxCVA has begun construction of a facility to manufacture cryogenic storage, distribution and vaporization equipment to supply the South American industrial gases and LNG markets.
The facility is being built on an 84,000 sq. meter plot of land in the Campinas region of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The planned start-up for the facility is the second half of 2013.
InoxCVA initiated operations in South America in June of 2011 with its’ formation of InoxCVA South America and the start-up of its cryogenic maintenance and repair center in Indaiatuba, Brazil.
“Operating in the region, over the last year and a half, has provided a unique opportunity for us to understand our customers’ needs and the challenges they face, which are specific to the region,” said Joe Farach who heads InoxCVA South America.
“By manufacturing locally, we will help our customers be more competitive, providing them with equipment that is designed and manufactured to meet their specific needs.”
“… with the local presence of InoxCVA South America team, our customers have the added confidence and comfort level of entrusting us with large orders for ASU bulk tanks and trailers, apart from the steady buy of standard customer tanks and mini tanks,” said Savir Julka, who heads Marketing and Sales.
“The South American footprint clearly strengthens our global position and presence. InoxCVA operates from USA, Canada, India, China and Brazil directly, and through a vast distribution network covering Australia, South and Far East Asia, Middle East, Europe and Africa,” added Savir Julka.
In addition to this new manufacturing facility, InoxCVA has made recent investments to add or expand manufacturing capabilities at its’ existing facilities in the United States, India and China.
“Expanding our global footprint, to now include South America, puts InoxCVA in a strategic position to serve our global customers in key growth markets around the world,” states Parag Kulkarni, CEO & Director, InoxCVA.
InoxCVA South America will also market and service, in the region, “frac” pumping units and nitrogen pumpers, used in the Oil andt Gas industry, and manufactured at the group’s unit in Houston, Texas.
“Argentina holds the world’s third largest reserves of shale gas after China and the US. We expect similar development in shale gas production that we saw in the US, and we are ready to supply and service “frac” pumping equipment in the region,” said Kulkarni.
