AIM Expands Manufacturing Capabilities in Brazil

Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, expands its presence in Brazil, with the addition of Alfatec Indústria e Comércio Ltda as a licensed manufacturer of AIM’s extensive line of solder assembly materials, to meet growing demand within the Brazilian market. While complying with AIM's standards, Alfatec will locally produce liquid flux, solder paste, bar solder, cored and solid wire, to support AIM's customers within Brazil.

Alfatec, founded in 1991, operates in the Free Zone of Manaus, in the state of Amazonas in Brazil. In 1995, Alfatec began to import solder paste from the US. In the following years, Alfatec installed modern laboratories under stringent quality control policies, for the production of quality solder paste, to meet the needs of SMT and SMD industries in the Brazilian marketplace. Alfatec is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.

"We are excited that Alfatec has joined our growing network in Brazil," said AIM's Latin America Sales Manager, Rodrigo Cacho. "The addition of a local licensed manufacturer strengthens AIM’s commitment to this very important and expanding market."
