German auto supplier Norma Group continues its global growth pattern, setting up production in Brazil with injection molding and toolmaking.

Norma has had a sales and engineering office in Santo André, Brazil, since 2011, but the new manufacturing site in Atibaia will give it more capabilities, the company said in a Sept. 20 news release.

The expansion into Brazil comes just two months after Norma, based in Maintal, Germany, acquired Craig Assembly Inc. of St. Clair, Mich., to establish plastics production in North America.

Norma Group previously had sales and metal production operations in North America, but bought Craig Assembly to lead its plastics components business in the United States.

The new Brazil facility will manufacture products including exhaust couplings, clamps, quick connectors and fluid systems. The company has already signed an agreement to buy plastics production equipment for the new plant.

Production is scheduled to begin in 2014.
