In response to increasing activity in Brazil, the MacArtney Underwater Technology Group, based in Denmark, has opened a new sales office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Expansion into the area will be further supported by a workshop in Macae that will provide MacArtney standard service locally.
The MacArtney Underwater Group has strengthened its presence in South America with the opening of a new subsidiary office in the major offshore Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. Headed by General Manager, Marcio Robles, the sales office will provide a professional local presence for the Brazilian and South American market, supported by the long-established global MacArtney network.
Marcio Robles is native to Brazil and has a solid background in the offshore oil and gas industry. He will be a valuable asset to MacArtney activities in the region.
"Marcio is a Mechanical Engineer with an excellent business management background and we are pleased to be working with him to establish further business development in the Brazilian region" said Niels Erik Hedeager, CEO for the MacArtney Group.
"His experience with processes, products and services for the entire oil and gas production chain will provide our customers in the region with invaluable advice, service and support."
Marcio has undergone intensive, thorough training at MacArtney headquarters in Denmark and the office opened for business on Monday the 2nd of November 2009.
MacArtney Brazil will also offer customers local testing, integration and installation through the planned new workshop in Macae. It will provide MacArtney global standard moulding, fibre optic and electronic service and engineering.
