The branch was already established in 1983. For many years Balluff was the only sensor manufacturer from Europe with its own production site in Brazil.

Because many international customers with their own production plants are represented here, it was essential for Balluff to be on site itself to guarantee that products are delivered on time and customer requirements are met. Here, Balluff produces inductive, optical and mechanical sensors for the Brazilian market and does customization for the local market.

The Brazilian branch has been fully owned by Balluff since 2011.
