Recognising the value of local expertise, Motive appointed experienced Lead Inspector Luis Ferrari as Operations Manager (South America) in June 2023, with Luis taking responsibility for establishing core services in Brazil.

With boots on the ground and equipment in-country, all core services are now available locally and beyond, including LOLER inspection, NDT, load testing, DROPS Inspection, rope access, wire rope management, spooling, crane wire rope EMAG, wire rope change out, and socketing.

We are excited to grow our footprint into Brazil. Establishing Motive Do Brasil Ltda allows us to better serve our clients across South America, extending local availability of Motive equipment and expertise. We look forward to getting further established in the year ahead, growing our Brazil team, and developing new partnerships.
