Brazil and India Join Forces to Build Railroad Wagons

    The city of Santa Maria, in the southernmost Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, is going to receive a factory of railroad wagons.

    Responsible for the undertaking is the Santa Fé Vagões, a joint venture between logistics company América Latina Logí­stica, ALL, and Besco, manufacturer of equipments in the railroad sector from India.


    The factory will generate about 400 direct jobs and will have initial investment of US$ 2.126 million. The project also foresees the production of 1,000 wagons per year.


    The installation of the company should spark up the formation of a metal-mechanics hub supplying parts and components. The information is from the government of Rio Grande do Sul.
