Kobelco Establishes Brazilian Subsidiary

Rounds out global nonstandard compressor network


Published:

Kobelco Machinery do Brasil Ltda. (KMB) has begun the marketing of nonstandard compressors (custom-engineered process compressors) in South America from headquarters in Sao Paulo.

Kobelco, a Kobe Steel subsidiary, said it is one of the few manufacturers that can supply centrifugal, reciprocating and screw compressors. Kobelco has a 50% share of the world market for nonstandard screw compressors used in refining, petrochemical, natural gas and other large-scale facilities.

Kobe Steel will determine later whether to add other machinery products, such as small and medium-sized standard compressors, to KMB’s marketing menu.

Kobe Steel has been building a global marketing and service network for its nonstandard compressors, establishing locations in China, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, North America, and Europe. It said the addition of the South American branch will enable it to cover all the world’s major markets.
