Global custom engineered thermoplastics compounder RTP Company has opened a sales office and warehouse in Brazil. Located in Alphaville, Barueri, Brazil near Sao Paulo, the operation is the latest addition to RTP Company’s global presence and provides sales support and a distribution point to the countries of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay in South America.

“The booming economy in Brazil is in need of more sophisticated plastic compounds to respond to increased demand for domestically produced products from the automotive, consumer goods, and energy markets,” according to Jean Sirois, Director of Sales – South America at RTP Company.

As RTP Company’s first operation in the Americas outside the NAFTA region, establishment of the office and warehouse are a continuation of the company’s ongoing commitment to locally support global OEMs and processors using its custom engineered thermoplastic compounds. It comes just one-year after opening a manufacturing site in Monterrey, Mexico which has allowed the company to better service the Central and South American regions.
