Lödige Cooperates with Semco in Brazil

November 28, 2011
Gebrüder Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH has established a strategic partnership with the Brazilian Semco Equipamentos Industriais Ltda. The Brazilian manufacturer of industrial mixers with registered office in São Paulo will represent Lödige in South America as a distributor and license holder.

Semco has extensive experience in the production of mixers, reactors, and dryers, as well as the process technology field. Its focus is process technology for mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries. Semco is now responsible for the sales and installation of Lödige machines in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. All standard components for process technology applications will be manufactured under license directly in Brazil.

Brazil is the eighth largest economy worldwide and its third largest industry is chemicals. In 2010, the Brazilian market for chemical products regained its pre-crisis volume of 2008. All South American countries are expecting a strong and sustained economic growth. The demand for imports is steadily growing.

With the new partner Semco, Lödige will be able to react much better to the specific regional customer requirements. This will strengthen Lödige´s position on the South American market on a long-term basis.
