Aumund has established its fourth global service centre with an integrated warehouse in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The centre is intended to improve the availability and operation of customers' equipment through maintenance. The central location is designed to serve customers in South America, where 10% of Aumund's equipment is supplied and installed. The centre follows the engineering firm's other service centres in Germany, the US and China.

The new centre's service team consists of 10 personnel, including supervisors, inspectors and technicians for field service activities. All inspectors are trained in Aumund's PREMAS maintenance framework. In addition to keeping spare parts in stock the new service centre will also service and repair equipment manufactured by Schade Lagertechnik GmbH and Samson Materials Handling Ltd.

Aumund Brazil started operations in 1975 with a sales office in Rio de Janerio. In 1993 the company moved to Jundai in São Paulo state and then to the city of São Paulo in 1997.
