Gleason establishes a new sales and service operation in Brazil

December 6, 2010

Sao Paolo, Brazil, December 6, 2010 -

To meet the needs of gear manufacturers in the important and growing Brazilian market, Gleason Corporation has expanded its global presence with the formation of Gleason do Brasil Comércio de Máquinas Ltda. based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Previously, Gleason’s activities in Brazil were conducted through its representative "ARBUS" Armando Busseti Máquinas Ltda. While Gleason and ARBUS enjoyed a successful relationship for many years, both companies have decided it is in their mutual best interests to end their relationship. This now creates the opportunity for Gleason to more directly and actively serve the Brazilian market. Both Gleason and ARBUS are committed to a smooth transition of sales and service responsibilities to Gleason do Brasil, and Gleason thanks ARBUS for its many years of dedicated service.


John J. Perrotti, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The establishment of Gleason do Brasil expands our global mission and reinforces our commitment of being The Total Gear Solutions Provider™ to our customers. Experienced expertise in this market has been retained for the Sales and Service of all Gleason products and technologies, allowing us to continue seamlessly in the support of customer needs. We are enthusiastic about the new organization in Brazil and look forward to serving our loyal customers in this key market."
