The LINDAL Group today announced plans to more than double the size of its Sao Paulo, Brazil-based facility, moving from the Jundiai area to the nearby town of Itupeva, in response to continued growth in the regional consumer product market — and the anticipation of still further gains – as well as to concurrent acceleration in demand for the company’s innovative aerosol dispensing solutions.
The LINDAL Group is a worldwide leader in the development and manufacture of valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products used in pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food applications.
LINDAL Brazil, a local market supplier since 1998, has leased a custom-built, expandable, new construction that will add manufacturing capacity for aerosol valves, house all molding and assembly operations, and provide office space for the entire staff, including sales, customer service, lab and manufacturing support teams, according to LINDAL Brazil’s Managing Director, Moacir Camargo.
“When we relocate to our new Itupeva facility by 3Q12, we will have expanded our Brazil facility by 250 percent, to 3,000 square meters,” Camargo said. “The growth of the Brazilian beauty market alone – 7.3 percent in 2011 – will boost demand for our aerosol solutions. Increasingly, consumers here perceive beauty products, for example, as essential – little luxuries they cannot do without – which is good news for innovative industry suppliers such as LINDAL.”
