Develon opens new parts centre in ‘growing’ Brazilian market
08 February 2024
Develon, formerly known as Doosan Construction Equipment, has opened a new Parts Distribution Centre (PDC) for the Brazilian market at Jundiaí, close to the city of São Paulo
The new facility in Jundiaí is the first in South America for the OEM and the eleventh worldwide as Develon looks to continue its Global PDC Footprint expansion strategy.
Young-cheul Cho, CEO of HD Hyundai Infracore (HDI), the parent company of Develon, said that there were “growing opportunities” in Brazil.
Speaking at the opening of the new PDC he said, “We value Brazil to the utmost and its importance is growing more and more, along with its great potential in terms of both its people and its natural resources.
“Having seen the growing opportunities in this country, we are here today to fulfil our promise made two years ago to our staff and customers to open the new PDC in the country.”
The new facility will enable parts to be available quicker for customers throughout the country, via the company’s network of dealers.
Occupying an area of 1988m², the new PDC has involved an initial investment of over US$2 million, not including the value of the stock, with the goal of establishing an inventory of 12,000 items in 2024 to reduce delivery times by 70%.
