Glaston Changes Operating Model of South American Subsidiary
As of February 2021, operations in Glaston’s Brazilian subsidiary will be discontinued, according to a company statement. In order to ensure continuous support and service to the South American customers, Glaston will strengthen its agency and partner network in the region.
At the end of year 2020 the scale-down of the operations of Glaston’s subsidiary in Sao Paolo, Brazil was started. Critical operations will continue until February 2021 and after that customer support and sales will be conducted together with external parties. Glaston’s global glass processing expertise is available to South American customers through the company’s regional Americas sales and service team headed by Kimmo Kuusela.
“Supporting our customers in their various business needs is a key priority for Glaston, and our customers can rely on our continued help and assistance,” says Sasu Koivumäki, chief sales officer at Glaston Corp. “We consider providing our global expertise through an agency network and dedicated service partners as the right way forward in the region.”
