 - October 22, 2009, 9:10 AM

Handling company Colt International (Booth No. 2211) announced here the grand opening of its new operations facility in São Paulo, Brazil. “With the opening of this facility, we’re making significant investments in Colt’s South American-based infrastructure,” said president Malcolm Hawkins. A local Portuguese- and Spanish-
speaking staff will operate the facility. Colt has poured “significant resources” into its facilities in the past two years and the São Paulo opening follows the launch last year of a Colt International facility in Geneva, Switzerland. Other recently completed Colt projects include a new Canadian office in Calgary, Alberta, and construction of the company’s new 22,000-sq-ft world headquarters in Houston.
