To serve customers and partners in Brazil, safety specialist HIMA has formed HIMA Segurança e Controle Crítico Ltda (HIMA Safety and Critical Control) and will open an office in Sao Paulo in August. The Brazilian company is HIMA’s sixteenth subsidiary.
“Our newest subsidiary reflects the increasing importance of Brazil in the worldwide economy and our desire to provide customers in the region with local support and meet local content requirements,” said Carlos Gebauer Neto, General Manager Brazil. “Working in cooperation with our local partners, HIMA Segurança e Controle Crítico will supply best-in-class services and support to help companies manage the safety lifecycle of their plants, pipelines and machines.”
Among other services, HIMA Segurança e Controle Crítico will provide systems assembly, safety application software programming and testing, on-site acceptance tests, and commissioning and startup services. HIMA expects the Brazilian subsidiary to become the company’s centre of safety expertise for Brazil and all of Latin America.
