Abrameq enables foreign companies to get to know the Brazilian market of machinery and meet the manufacturers personally through the Purchaser projects. It is a market that advances technologically. Congratulations to Abrameq for its initiatives.
The Brazilian market of machinery is plentiful in technology for the production of footwear. All the companies I have done business with have demonstrated reliability in their businesses and have kept excellent service standards.
Brazilian companies produce excellent machinery and are both able and mature enough to do business with Colombian companies.
The Brazilian machines offer good quality and state-of-the-art technology, which grants us excellent productivity.
Abrameq is actually an entity dedicated to the interests of its members. This being so, it does not save efforts and uses its full capacity to bring new initiatives that grant its members growth and integration. It is able to offer initiatives to many different member profiles, big or small. This makes the entity stronger as it sets a forum of discussion and diversified solutions. Besides all this, it is tuned to the fast changes in national and international commercial trends.
Abrameq, originally created to identify common interests among its affiliates, arose MECSUL’s interest in participating and searching for new horizons. Abrameq, structured upon the effective participation of its affiliates, started claiming its interests before public entities and hiring consultancies for the preparation of projects with the purpose of rising funds from SEBRAE, APEX, SDPI and others, thus granting member companies their development and access to new markets. MECSUL, on taking part in Abrameq, grew, developed and widened its domestic and international markets.
Abrameq has been a milestone in the history of Concórdia Máquinas, since it was through it that our company regained market competitiveness.
With their support, we created a new vision of commercial management, participating in collective fairs nationwide and publicizing our brand.
Abrameq acts strategically and aids in the generation of new technologies and internal/external commercial initiatives. We believe that, with this great partnership Abrameq facilitates, the affiliated companies are able to improve the performance and growth of the sector.
Globalization has opened borders to opportunity and international competition. We may now reach any part of the world with our brand and product.
Abrameq is the trade association that represents us before public authorities and other organizations.
It strengthens our sector, works for the unity of its members, harmonizes shared interests making them feasible and negotiates and expedites commercial actions.
It searches for and offers information in order to improve the commercial performance of its affiliates.
In my opinion, it is highly efficient in what it does.
Being part of Abrameq means not letting go of great business opportunities, either by lack of knowledge, possibilities, or information. With Abrameq we are able to keep track of such opportunities.
Abrameq gathers national industries that share the same market goals, trying to meet the group needs. Through its action, we have been able to feel the strength of our companies sharing information, organizing events and granting financial support.
Abrameq has always been very important in our commercial life. It has given us the support of sector representativeness, enabling our participation in national and international events at considerably reduced costs through projects with supporting agencies such as APEX, ABDI, SDPI and SEBRAE, with much lower space rental prices in FIMEC, the main event in our segment. I am sure that those who actively participate in Abrameq’s initiatives know of its importance for the representativeness of our companies.
In general, over the last few years, we have perceived a significant improvement in both the equipment’s finishing and added features, such as electrostatic paint and higher quality folding and machining.
The featured technology has clearly improved the overall performance of the machines and made maintenance easier. Former panels with a series of contactors, relays, timers, temperature controls and control circuits have been replaced by a single device covering these functions and, at the same time, fewer pneumatic/hydraulic valves are used. Much progress has also been made in safety, mainly with the implantation of NR-12 standard.
At Kunden, we always seek opportunities whenever there are projects and joint ventures. Apex-Brasil and Abrameq are always offering us such opportunities.
We are going through a great evolution in the footwear manufacturing companies: the search of new technologies to improve the quality of their products and the reduction of production lead time.
Machinery manufacturers quickly understood such need and did their best to gain technological innovation.
The market of machinery suppliers in Brazil is highly developed due to their huge domestic market, which demands constant development in search of productivity and process standardization, and its wide experience in exporting to several international markets. It offers state-of-the-art machinery together with a technical service that places it as a market leader in our region.
