Germany-based equipment maker Fuchs has announced the addition of Sandro Sato as regional sales manager (RSM) for South America. As an RSM, Sato will work closely with existing Fuchs customers and distributors and has been tasked with expanding and strengthening the distribution network for the Fuchs line of material handlers, which is marketed to the waste, scrap, logging and port markets.

“Sandro knows the South American market and offers extensive experience in both sales and aftermarket support of industrial and material handling equipment,” says Dominik Vierkotten, general manager of Fuchs. “He is the right addition to the Fuchs team to expand our reach and help customers throughout the territory grow their business through the use of purpose-built Fuchs material handlers.”

Sato has 20 years of equipment and aftermarket sales and service experience. Most recently he served as equipment sales manager for a global manufacturer of material handling equipment based in Germany. He also spent 14 years with a global supplier of industrial equipment, beginning as a technician and working his way up to equipment sales coordinator.  

“Fuchs has a well-earned reputation for delivering rugged durability in the most demanding applications and increasing material handling efficiency for customers across a broad range of markets,” says Sato. “I’m excited to work with customers and distributors in the scrap, waste, port, and logging markets and be a solution provider for their material handling needs.”

Sato will serve customers and distributors from his field office in São Paulo, Brazil, and he can be reached via email at Sandro.Sato@terex.com.
