Hydroelectric control systems manufacturer and servicer American Governor Company has opened a new office in Sao Paulo for its Brazilian subsidiary American Governor do Brasil.
"This is an exciting and important move for American Governor as we continue to expand our global footprint," said Roger Clarke-Johnson, western region manager and marketing manager.
The branch will be headed by marketing director Suzana Frisselli and technical director Marcelo Renault. Frisselli comes to AGB with experience as vice president for the Latin American Association for Renewable Energy.
Meanwhile, Renault has been a partner and the commercial and corporate director for Central Eletrica Anhanguera SA for more than 30 years, and also serves as president of the Latin American Association for Renewable Energy.
"As part of our long-term global strategy, American Governor aims to open regional governor support offices worldwide staffed by native speakers who provide full-time sales, service and technical support to their region," Clarke-Johnson said.
Headquartered in Ivyland, Pa., U.S., American Governor has already provided legacy parts and field services for a number of projects in South America.
The company said the incorporation of its Brazilian office will allow it to better serve South America's strong hydroelectric power market.
"Our goal is to offer other regions of the world the same high level of responsive, experienced governor support that our North American customers currently enjoy," Clark-Johnson said.
