In addition, Creaform has named Fernando Feliciano to the newly created position of Sales Supervisor for Brazil. Mr. Feliciano has previous industry experience as a reseller of Creaform technologies. Prior to that, he worked for more than three years with John Deere.

“Today, we begin a new era in Brazil”, explained Stephane Galibois, Head of Sales – Americas. “AMETEK do Brasil, the Brazilian subsidiary of our corporate parent, provides us with valuable market access, local resources and marketing support. Our collaboration with AMETEK with its well-established manufacturing and marketing presence in Brazil has been instrumental in helping us to quickly hire qualified personnel and seamlessly expand our product offering in Brazil. This expanded presence provides us with excellent growth opportunities and enables us to better serve our growing customer base, especially in key aerospace, automotive and energy production markets, many of which already are served by other AMETEK businesses.”

Creaform has offered best-in-class 3D measurement technologies to the Brazilian market for many years. This latest market push is a further testament to the company’s commitment to the region. “Brazil’s economy is the largest among Latin American nations, similar in GDP size to that of the United Kingdom or Russia, and one of the fastest growing in the world. We expect Creaform’s local business to grow significantly thanks to the closer and more efficient support of our end users,” added Mr. Galibois.
