The oldest factory in the production network
For sixty years B. GROB do Brasil has been producing machinery for Brazilian industry as well as for the export market. As the oldest plant of the GROB Group, the Brazilian company is an important component and powerful partner in the GROB coordinated production system. During fiscal year 2017 more than 550 employees utilizing a production area greater than 33,000 m² generated a net profit of 130 million euros.
The product portfolio comprises both the system business focused on machining lines for transmissions and engines, as well as 4- and 5-axis universal machining centers
B. GROB do Brasil enjoys an excellent reputation at home, based not only on the universally recognized high quality of GROB products as well as the fact that GROB has done business in Brazil for 60 years now. Numerous offspring of former GROB do Brasil staff now form a second generation of plant employees. They are trained according to the German model (dual training system), and then as a rule taken into the company as employees.
In order to ensure continuing success in coming years, substantial investment in plant and equipment has been made in four years amounting to 16 million euros. Implementation of production and administration optimization has integrated B. GROB do Brasil more closely with other GROB plants in the plant network. Particularly in coming years, this integration will be very advantageous, given increasingly tough competition.
