Prime Equipment Group is pleased to announce the addition of new engineering resources in its Brazil office, which will allow the poultry processing equipment company to start soon manufacturing machines and spare parts in Brazil.

“Prime Equipment Group is committed to the Brazil and South America markets, and this move will allow us to better serve our existing and new customers in these regions,” said Prime Equipment President Joseph Gasbarro. “We believe in supporting local industries in their home countries where we can, and we’re pleased to be working toward expanding into production in Brazil and helping further stimulate the local economy. Ultimately, Prime customers will see even better service and support from this move.”

Working with existing staff in Prime Brazil’s office in Chapecó, Santa Catarina, will be Bruno Luis Lise, who has been hired as a project engineer to evaluate and launch parts and equipment production in-country. A graduate of the Santa Catarina Federal Institute (IFC) with a background in Mechanical Design and Technical Mechanics, Lise brings to Prime Brazil more than 7 years experience in the food processing equipment industries.

“We’re proud to be expanding the Prime Equipment Group footprint in Brazil,” said Prime Brazil Sales Manager Sergio Pereria. “Expanding into local manufacturing here in Brazil is a significant step, and one that will provide our customers real benefits in speed, responsiveness and local engineering support.”
