Osborne Industries

US & BRAZIL - Osborne Industries, Incorporation, has announced it has reached an agreement with Brazil-based manufacturing company, Plasson do Brasil, to distribute Osborne’s pig management equipment in Brazil.

The announcement comes just one week before Plasson and Osborne will introduce their partnership to the Brazilian market at PorkExpo, Brazil’s largest pork-specific conference and tradeshow, 28-30 October, 2014, in Foz de Iguazu, Brazil.

The development of Osborne’s new distribution partnership with Plasson will allow Brazilian pig farmers to capture the unique strengths of both equipment suppliers. Plasson’s expertise in the manufacture and sales of agricultural products, along with Osborne’s experience in developing pig production equipment for over 40 years, will benefit farming practices in the emerging market in Brazil.

Osborne’s South America Sales Representative, Claudio Faundez, said, “Osborne’s unique relationship with Plasson will allow the pig industry in Brazil to modernise production practices with 21st century technology and North American pig production techniques.” Part of this agreement also includes the manufacturing of Osborne equipment parts and assembly by Plasson. “Having parts built and equipment assembled in Brazil is another huge advantage to Brazilian producers, with more affordable equipment and easier access to local financing,” said Mr Faundez.

According to George Eakin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Osborne, Plasson is now qualified to supply and service Osborne’s trademark products like the Stanfield pig heating pad and Big Wheel pig feeder. Plasson will also install and service the Osborne TEAM (Total Electronic Animal Management) electronic sow feeding (ESF) system, FIRE (Feed Intake Recording Equipment) pig performance testing system, and Weight Watcher pig growth management and sorting system.

Osborne and Plasson’s pig production equipment will be on display at PorkExpo, 28-30 October, 2014, at booth #29B.

Plasson do Brasil has led the Brazilian agricultural industry as a leading supplier for 18 years. Headquartered in Israel, Plasson has a distribution network in more than 80 countries, including manufacturing facilities in Germany, Italy, France, England, Australia, India and Brazil. The company will begin marketing Osborne and Plasson-branded products to the pork industry within the year. For more information about Plasson do Brasil, visit
