Work Starts on Trelleborg Offshore*s New Brazil Facility

Trelleborg has marked the start of work on its new Brazil facility with a sod-cutting ceremony at the site in Macaé.

The new facility, due to open towards the end of 2011, will manufacture Trelleborg Offshore’s complete product portfolio, which includes a wide range of polymer-based solutions for offshore topside and subsea oil and gas exploration.

Supporting increasing demand

Alan Wilson, president of Trelleborg Offshore, commented: “Major oil and gas discoveries have been made off the coast of Brazil in recent years, as a consequence of which, we are experiencing increasing demand for our high-performance polymer and syntactic foam-based buoyancy and cable protection solutions from the region.

“We are committed to opening a new manufacturing facility close to our customer base so that our local team is on-hand to provide the technical support that our customers have come to know and expect from the Trelleborg brand.”
