February 20 - As part of its ongoing expansion plans, Hansa Heavy Lift has opened a new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The new Brazilian facility, which opened at the beginning of Feburary, will be headed up by Gilberto Lima, who joins Hansa from Wasa Projects and Logistics Ltd.

"Latin America is an important and vibrant market for the heavy lift industry," said Joerg Roehl, chief commercial officer at Hansa. "We are delighted that Gilberto is joining our group and adding his extensive experience within the heavy lift industry to the team."

The office in Sao Paulo opened just one month after Hansa's new Australian branch was set up, which was reported by HLPFI on January 16, 2014.
