MONTREAL, April 30, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - R3D Consulting is continuing its growth, announcing the opening of a new office in the largest city in an emerging economic powerhouse: Sao Paolo, Brazil. This is a first for Quebec-based IT firms. This continued international expansion will further extend the firm's global reach.
Present in the United States, Mexico and Canada, R3D Consulting recently opened an office in France, and is now preparing to establish a presence in Brazil to better serve the needs of its international and South American clients. The Sao Paolo office will serve as the regional headquarters for South America. Opening this new office will allow the firm to develop new markets that offer exceptional opportunities for the Quebec-based firm.
"This expansion is part of R3D Consulting's growth strategy. It supports the firm's position as a leader in managing major technological projects. We have successfully managed to establish ourselves internationally. We have the credibility and all the necessary tools to ensure that our new office in Brazil is a success," said Bernard Roy, President and Chief Operating Officer of R3D Consulting.
Already, a multi-million dollar contract to transform 16 factories for the manufacturing giant Faurecia, is awaiting the new employees at the Sao Paolo office. A world leader in the automotive industry, Faurecia supplies parts and equipment to major automotive manufacturers. R3D Consulting will work with Faurecia to enable major technological shifts that will improve the performance of its Brazilian plants.
"The success that came with R3D Consulting's implementation of SAP business solutions in our factories in the United States and in Mexico has encouraged us to continue our work with R3D Consulting in Brazil in order to maintain our position as a leader in the automotive parts and equipment sector," said Bernard Eteneau, Chief Technology Officer at Faurecia.
A testament to the Quebec firm's international expertise and excellence, R3D Consulting has been one of the few partners of choice retained by Faurecia throughout the recent global economic turmoil. Thus, this new challenge bodes well for R3D Consulting, a firm that has successfully grown its own business by 95% over the last 24 months.
