Finland drilling products manufacturer Robit has signed a distribution agreement with Brazil Caterpillar dealer Sotreq under which the latter will represent Robit and its products in the South American country.
Rio de Janeiro-based Sotreq will sell and support Robit’s “top-notch drilling consumables” in Brazil’s mining and construction markets.
The partnership supported Robit’s goal to expand its global market coverage and strengthen its distributor network, CEO Arto Halonen said.
Marcelo Orberg, CEO of Sotreq, emphasised confidence “in the expansion of underground mining” in Brazil.
“For this it is essential to add technology to the activity, with state-of-the-art accessories, which add productivity to our customers’ business,” he said.
