Luca Ceresa, Saip Commercial Manager for North and South America, introduced BY Engenharia Ltda, the company's new agent for Brazil: "With its over 20 years of continued and successful business presence in Brazil, the proven knowledge of the local market and the high reputation gained by always adhering to the highest ethical standards, BY Engenharia is an excellent partner for Saip and the most valuable reference point for all our current and prospect customers in Brazil. "BY Engenharia, established in 1989 and based in São Paulo, has a complete, lean and effective organizational structure that includes both technical and commercial competences, people with the right know-how and a service-oriented mindset: this is what Saip customers need to succeed, and the necessary requisites for any company willing to join Saip global network, Ceresa said. Saip supports the UN for ozone protection Furthermore, Saip Equipment was invited to speak at the Round Table on Foams organised by the United Nations in Santiago, Chile, along with the International Meeting on Ozone Protection. Lidia Bruzza, Saip agent for Argentina, gave a presentation on the technological solutions that the company has developed for its customers, specifically to replace the substances responsible for ozone depletion and global warming. According to the company, Saip supports the United Nations Organization efforts for the conversion of CFC's and HCFC's since 1996, and it has participated during the latest 15 years in over 300 UN projects. "Saip customers in this region do not only need competitive equipment but complete solutions to allow the smoothest transition to the new substances, while maintaining the efficiency and profitability of their current business. Protecting the environment is not only a good practice, but a shortcut to accelerating both business expansion and earnings growth, said Bruzza. "Saip customers are aware of the value of our technologies and solutions, and this is why for an increasing number of companies we are and remain the supplier of choice when it comes to polyurethane applications, Bruzza added. "Being an active and respected partner of the United Nations in such projects is very important for Saip, well beyond the value of such cooperation from a pure commercial perspective. We are proud of contributing to one of the key global actions taken by the Organization for the preservation of the environment, and moreover it is a clear proof of the value of our know-how and technology, underlined Ceresa. "Saip operates based on the principles of sustainable development, constantly striving to balance our financial, environmental and social responsibilities. This is the model we strongly believe in, and certainly among the reasons of Saip continued profitable growth, Ceresa added. Saip recently supported one of its customers in Argentina for the upgrade of its line from discontinuous to continuous production. This allowed the customer not only to significantly increase both its efficiency and productivity, but even more importantly to enhance the quality of the foam that now allows for significantly better insulating performances, says Saip.
