Halifax Fan has taken another bold step into a major global market sector. M.D. Malcolm Staff reports a recent increase in both direct and indirect sales to South America, warranting the establishment of a dedicated presence in the market. With the appointment of Brazilian agent MaxVent, Halifax Fan will offer both sales and service support across Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

MaxVent, based in Indaiatuba, São Paulo, has considerable experience in the field of custom rotating machinery, with a focus on large centrifugal and axial fans, particularly for ATEX certification projects, a Halifax speciality. Headed by Marcos Benedito, with over 40 years of fan knowledge in Latin America, the company will offer comprehensive sales, project support and on-site services, along with spares and repairs for the full range of Halifax fans.
