Trelleborg receives manufacturing license in Brazil
MACAé, Brazil -- Trelleborg’s offshore operation has been awarded its Licença Municipal de Operação (LMO) certification; a municipal license which permits the company to manufacture in Brazil. As a result, Trelleborg has received and delivered its first order for its Vikotherm PT thermal insulation tape, manufactured at its Brazil facility.
Richard Beesley, business group director within Trelleborg Offshore & Construction in Brazil, said, “Receiving an LMO license is an important step for Trelleborg, one which completes the startup of Trelleborg’s manufacturing facility for offshore products and enables us to commence local production.”
Vikotherm thermal insulation is part of the growing suite of subsea ancillary products, which Trelleborg is now able to manufacture locally in Macaé. Other solutions within the company’s portfolio include bend protection, Uraduct abrasion protection, vortex induced vibration suppression and thermal insulation (coating and shells).
Trelleborg has several manufacturing facilities in Brazil, in Macaé, São Paulo and São José dos Campos, employing approximately 400 people across five sites, as well as several sales offices that cultivate the local market.
