Autocam Medical is targeting the fast-growing Brazilian economy and its burgeoning need for high-tech medical devices. Last year, the company became a VISA-certified contract manufacturer in Brazil and has established a local manufacturing presence in São Paulo to produce an array of precision-machined surgical implants and instruments, including bone screws, plates, drivers and drill bits.

In addition, Autocam Medical has developed an important strategic alliance with US-based Jewel Precision to manufacture, sell and distribute surgical trays and cases throughout South America. All Autocam Medical facilities are linked to a centralized quality and management system that services OEM customers worldwide through a single, local point of contact.

Thomas O’Mara, executive vice president of Autocam Medical, said: "Because it’s one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, the opportunity in Brazil is enormous. The healthcare market there is very attractive. Our São Paolo operation supports our local customers, and also helps grow our global business."
