Suzano has five industrial units located in the States of Bahia and São Paulo. In Mucuri, south of Bahia, is its largest integrated pulp and paper facility. Three facilities are located in Suzano, Rio Verde and Embu, in the state of São Paulo.

Suzano purchased 44 Tigercat machines for its harvesting operations in Maranhao and an additional five units for the Bahia operations in early 2013. Tigercat achieved this order with the commitment and cooperation of its Brazilian dealer, Tracbel S.A., one of the strongest and most successful heavy equipment dealer organizations in the country.

Wagner Itria, Suzano’s director, comments, “We knew Tigercat equipment, we carried on some tests at the beginning of 2012. Tigercat was the most dedicated company to work with through these tests; they gave a lot of attention to Suzano. We went to visit their factories, we could see the fabrication process, the hard work of their employees and the robustness of their equipment and on top they count with Tracbel as their dealer in Brazil, a consolidated company in the Brazilian market with an excellent background in after sales support.”
