Integra Systems will produce Columbia palletisers and load transfer solutions in Brazil
Columbia Machine and Integra Systems have executed a licence agreement that will allow Integra Systems to produce Columbia palletisers and load transfer solutions in Brazil. This milestone achievement follows a similar agreement announced earlier this year between Integra Systems and Columbia/Okura LLC.
Columbia has been working with Integra since 2014. The execution of these recent licence agreements reflects Columbia's ongoing confidence in pursuing a strategic relationship with Integra Systems.
"We are excited to strengthen our relationship with Integra," says Pat O'Connor, president of the Columbia Palletizer Division. "This will allow the Palletizer Division at Columbia to serve the expanding market in Brazil with complete palletising and load transfer solutions that are manufactured and serviced from Brazil. Having the local resources and support of such a great partner will be a huge benefit to our customers."
"The licence agreement with Columbia is a major milestone and a natural response to our expanding market in Brazil, allowing Integra to serve clients with greater speed and lower costs," says Renato Maia, managing partner of Integra Systems Industria e Comercio Ltda. "Integra is enthusiastic (about) the opportunity and looks forward to further enhancing Columbia's reputation and reach locally."
Columbia continues to evolve product offerings to meet growing customer needs for innovative, safe and flexible palletising systems. The expanded relationship with Integra will leverage the strengths of both companies to serve client needs in Brazil and Latin America.
Columbia boasts over 50 years of palletising experience, while Integra Systems has been supplying integrated solutions for end-of-line production since 2014. Headquartered in Jundiai, the industrial cluster in Sao Paulo, Integra services clients across Brazil and Latin America.
