Cobham has officially launched into the Brazilian market by the opening of a new subsidiary in São Paulo. Cobham do Brasil Ltda will provide a basis for Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance to develop relationships and a foundation for active engagement with customers and partners in the public and private sectors.

The new office enables Cobham to fulfil its commitment to establishing a formal presence in-country and continue to develop its relationships and partnerships with the nation’s Tier-1 and Tier-2 distributors and customers alike. This supports the Brazilian defence strategy for indigenisation of key technologies in the security and defence market. Cobham’s core communications technology can provide market leading capabilities for both tactical and strategic security infrastructures.

David Ashton, Vice President of Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance, says: “he newly established subsidiary will help Cobham commit to significant long-term investment and will reinforce our presence in a nation which has always been one of our key markets. A local office will allow us to meet the increasing need for our products, technologies and after-sale support. Cobham do Brasil will help strengthen our cooperation with Brazilian industries and support the development of strategic partnerships with public and private organisations.”
