Biesterfeld Expands to Brazil

Effective from April 1st 2015 Biesterfeld Simko Distribuição Ltda. has started its operation in the Brazilian market. The newly founded company is a 50/50 joint venture between Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH, a European plastic & rubber distributor with its headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, and Simbras Ltda., a Brazilian subsidiary of Simko S.A., a Latin American plastic and rubber distributor.

With immediate effect Biesterfeld Simko Distribuição Ltda. has been appointed Key-Distributor in Brazil by DuPont´s Performance Polymer division, a long standing Partner for Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH across Europe. The DuPont product range of Engineering Polymers, Thermoplastic Elastomers and High Performance Rubber will be complemented with Chi Mei´s comprehensive product range of Styrene Copolymers such as ABS, SAN, ASA, SBS as well as PC, PMMA and PC-Blends. Chi Mei has been a partner for both Simko and Biesterfeld for more than 25 years.

With its headquarters in Sao Paulo and a local Sales office in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Biesterfeld Simko Distribuição Ltda. aims to become a major Distributor for Engineering Polymers, Elastomers, High Performance Rubber as well as Styrene Copolymers in the Brazilian market.

“Growth prospects in Brazil for our key market segments are very encouraging whilst European Investment and know-how transfer into the plastic processing & automotive sector will continue to play a dominant role. In our view, trusted partnerships between Principals and Key Distributors will ensure close cooperation in marketing campaigns and technical application development. This is exactly what we offer in Europe and from now on also in Brazil. We are happy that our partners share exactly the same point of view.”, comments Carsten Harms, Member of the Executive Board of Biesterfeld AG and Managing Director of Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH.
