Raven establishes Latin American headquarters

March 6, 2018

Raven Industries has opened a regional headquarters in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Raven Brasil, aligned under the company’s applied technology division, will include a new facility with more than 20 employees by the end of the year.

There will be resources for sales, training, repair, warehousing and assembly.

“Our expansion into Brazil marks a major milestone in the growth of Raven,” said Brian Meyer, division vice president and general manager of the applied technology division. “Brazil has huge market potential for the technologies that are core to Raven. We are poised to provide innovative application-control technology, backed by the outstanding quality and service our customers have come to expect from us. This headquarters facility will help improve our market-share position and drive substantial growth for Raven over the long term.”

The Brazilian market is a good fit for Raven’s precision agriculture products, the company said. They are designed to reduce operating costs and improve yields and profitability. Products include the Hawkeye Nozzle Control System, which Raven called a natural fit for the large corn and soybean crop in Brazil.

Jeff Rohlena, director of Latin American operations and international sales, will lead Raven Brasil. He has more than 20 years of sales experience, including 10 years of international sales and business development experience with Raven.
