TECHNOLOGY: Wenco moves into Brazil with TecWise partnership



Wenco and TecWise have become partners to distribute Wenco solutions in Brazil.

VANCOUVER – Wenco International Mining Systems has created a new partnership with TecWise Sistemas de Automaçãon, a leading provider of technology and communications systems to the Latin American mining industry.

This new agreement makes TecWise the exclusive distributor of Wenco solutions in Brazil, paving the way for customers in the largest Latin American country to leverage Wenco’s open and interoperable approach to mining technology.

“We’re excited to enter the strategic Brazilian mine market in partnership with TecWise,” says Andrew Pyne, president and CEO of Wenco. “In line with our focus on growing our presence in Latin America, Brazil is a key strategic priority for Wenco, particularly as we collaborate with Hitachi Construction Machinery on their Solution Linkage for Mining platform.

“We have planned this collaborative entry into the Brazilian market for some time and we took our time to identify the right partner, which we found in TecWise. They will ensure our customers have knowledgeable, on-the-ground local support for Wenco solutions for the long haul.”
