RIVITEX COMERCIO: Expanding the Merrow Market in Brazil


Rivitex Comercio is a leading parts and equipment supplier to the Brazilian textile industry and a premier Merrow sales agent. Rivitex specializes in overlock sewing and since 1995 has sold and serviced Merrow end-to-end seaming machines used in the textile finishing sector. Recently, Rivitex expanded their presence in Brazil's burgeoning apparel industry and successfully introduced Merrow ActiveSeam. The formula for Rivitex's success was simple:

 1. Visit the Merrow Factory for ActiveSeam sales and service training.
 2. Work with Merrow marketing to develop assets for local advertisement.

 On the heels of a successful showing at the Febratex trade show in Brazil this past August, Thomas Schwarzbach from Rivitex came to Fall River to learn the ins and outs of the MB-4DFO and he brought examples of the advertising materials he made for the Brazilian market. Take a look below for some pictures from Febratex and Thomas' time at Merrow!

You can learn more about Rivitex on their website and Facebook page.
