Dear Sir or Madam,

The recession in Brazil is having a strong impact on the automotive market, the largest in South America. Periods of low utilization may be prompting many of you to think about upgrading and modernizing your production plants to be prepared for the next surge. Dürr is recognized as a competent and sought-after partner in this field.

In October 2014, for example, we were commissioned to modernize the control rooms of the top-coat oven in Ford's paint shop at the São Bernardo site. The work was completed in a record time of only two months and in parallel with ongoing production. The customer was so satisfied with the results that they placed further orders with Dürr Brasil.

Dürr has particular expertise in complex upgrades. Thanks to the experience and dedication of our teams, we meet the most demanding schedules – after all, every day counts for our customers. More and more production plants are beginning to show their age. Our technologies allow you to reduce your production costs and speed up processes. Our national company, Dürr Brasil, is flexible and able to complete projects of any size competently – from small service orders to entire paint shop upgrades.

Brazil remains one of Dürr's core markets. We are here to offer you reliable and efficient support even during this difficult period.

Best wishes
Ralf W. Dieter
CEO of Dürr AG
