Snorkel Appoints Dealer in Brazil

Snorkel has strengthened its presence in Brazil, with the appointment of a new partner, Movimenttar Equipamentos Industriais. Based in Sao Paolo, the company is a subsidiary of Comingersoll, one of Brazil’s leading distributors of construction and industrial equipment. Founded in December 2011, Movimenttar is the group’s dedicated company in Brazil for the supply of aerial lifts and materials handling equipment. Along with Snorkel, it also represents the Doosan brand of forklifts.


Marcos Sampaio, director general of Movimenttar, said: "We established Movimenttar to focus on the evolving market for materials handling equipment and aerial lifts. Snorkel is the ideal partner for us in aerial lifts because it produces machines that are very simple to service and repair.”


Mike Falcon, Snorkel’s regional sales manager for Latin America, said: “Movimenttar is the perfect partner for us in Brazil. The company has a clear vision for growth, a lot of expertise in aerial lifts and a great track record for customer service.


“Snorkel continues to expand in Latin America and is working hard to appoint more partners and distributors across the continent. We look for partners with a strong sales and marketing plan, but also with very high service and product support capabilities.”


The company joins a growing network of Snorkel partners in Latin America, including SimmaRent in Chile, LMA Industrial in Argentina, and Proing in Colombia.
