AgustaWestland to expand facilities in Brazil

AgustaWestland released that its Brazilian subsidiary, AgustaWestland Do Brasil, is to undergo a major expansion with the building of a new facility in Sao Paulo, which will include maintenance hangars with space that could accommodate a helicopter final assembly line, training centre, bonded warehouse, workshops and other supporting services including a dedicated heliport. Construction of the new facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. Daniele Romiti, CEO, AgustaWestland, announcing the plan at LABACE in Sao Paulo said “Brazil is a very important and growing market for AgustaWestland, so it gives me great pleasure to be able to announce this plan as we continue to grow our business not only in Brazil but throughout Latin America. This new larger facility will enable us to grow our industrial presence and to potentially assemble helicopters in Brazil, demonstrating our long term commitment to the region and our customers.”
