Freudenberg - Innovating Together

Companies in Brazil

​​Freudenberg has held business ties with customers and suppliers in Brazil for more than 165 years. As Freudenberg started as a tannery, early business connections in the company´s history were established through buying in skins and trading of leather. After Freudenberg had developed into one of the most important producers of sealing technology the company started operating a seals production facility in São Paulo.

Nowadays eight companies operate in Brazil, with locations in all of the country´s regions. 1,500 employees are dedicated to finding innovative applications and to supporting the success of the customers in the automotive industry as well as textile, hygiene, oil and gas, construction and machine construction sectors. An investment program of R$ 100 million is currently underway to strengthen production capacities and to allow us to offer high quality in production, service and products.

In July ​2013 Freudenberg officially opened the Freudenberg Regional Corporate Center South America (FRCC SA) in Alphaville near São Paulo. FRCC SA is the central contact for Freudenberg companies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Venezuela.
