ALMACO Creates Competitiveness Committee

26 February 2013

The Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO) has created a Competitiveness Committee which aims to evaluate all stages of the production process, identify the key factors that influence costs and then develop tools that increase profitability.

Coordinated by Paulo Camatta, Executive Manager of ALMACO, the Competitiveness Committee will have a multidisciplinary character, involving both experts in composites and consultants in the areas of tax, law and government programs.

“We will work as broadly as possible to achieve the reduction of costs for the companies associated with ALMACO”, says Camatta. He points out that the Committee is associated with the Program Investing in Brazil, created by the entity last year. Among other goals, the program seeks tax equality with competing materials, the revision of tax rates and the increased access to credit facilities.
