June 9th 2015. York. Cellhire plc, the international mobile solutions specialist, has opened a new office in Sao Paulo – its first in Brazil – to capitalise on the expanding Brazilian market and build a platform to serve its global customer base for the Olympics that the country will host in 2016. The event will be used as a springboard to further establish the new office and gain a strong domestic foothold for business after the Olympics. Last year Cellhire, which is headquartered in York, delivered more than 14,000 connections at the FIFA World Cup as both business and media descended on Brazil for one of the biggest events in the world. Since then, the company has laid the appropriate foundations to maximise Brazil’s next big event in 2016 and capitalise on the growing Brazilian market. Cellhire will be offering voice and data connections, supporting live reporting from Rio to news desks around the world.
Martyn Stevens, Director of International Business Development at Cellhire, says, “Our new office in Brazil is a fantastic opportunity for Cellhire to break into Latin America and build on the back of our success at the FIFA World Cup. We’re looking forward to Rio 2016 and we have our unique network agreements in place to really make the most of it and to get our latest office off to a great start.” The Olympics kick off in Rio in August 2016 and Cellhire has already secured some major clients for voice and data connections at the event, with some customers travelling out to Brazil as early as May 2016.
