New partner in Brazil: Altomar
Strengthening their presence in South America and Brazil in particular, Altomar and Hatenboer-Water are pleased to announce their official partnership today. The water production and treatment products manufactured by Hatenboer-Water complement Altomar’s range of maritime products and services.
Altomar’s Sales Supervisor Rebeca Santanna: “We’re always looking for strategic partners to build strong relationships. In that scenario, Hatenboer-Water is a perfect choice since they fit our “dream team brand” check list: world reference in water treatment; specialized in the offshore and maritime industry; high technical expertise; well-known products for the target customers; quality systems solutions. Above all, Altomar and Hatenboer-Water sell solutions, not products, and therefore we can bring value to each other. We’re looking forward to adding our Brazilian flavour to the table and fire up the business together with Hatenboer-Water!”
Edward Verweij, Managing Director of Hatenboer-Water Americas, adds:“For many years already, Hatenboer-Water is a trusted name onboard Offshore rigs, FPSO’s, Navy vessels and of course throughout the regular commercial maritime industry. With the Hatenboer Americas office & warehouse in Houston taking shape now, a logic part of increasing our presence throughout the western hemisphere was to also look at Brazil, where quite a few or our customers have ongoing operations.
Looking for ways to expand our activities in Brazil, I got to know Altomar as an existing customer of ours. They turned out to be a group of knowledgeable, entrepreneurial, and enthusiastic people, looking to further grow their already successful Offshore Distributor business, but only with A-rated brands. All this perfectly fitted the bill for Hatenboer-Water in terms of strengthening our presence and creating local availability in Brazil. I’m therefore very excited to start working with “the A-team” and I’m sure our customers will be too!"
