In the month in which Brazil’s Independence is celebrated, Vipal Rubber and its main partner in the United Kingdom, Vaculug, promoted the second edition of Brazilian Day.
Strategic Alliance Strengthened
Held on September 9th in an outdoor space in Grantham, England, the integration event featured several games and gastronomy. More than 200 people, including members of the Vipal commercial team, Vaculug employees and their families, participated in the action.
Leisure activities included go-kart racing, Laser Tag games and bowling in a complete recreational park for children of all ages. The programme included raffles for Brazilian football team t-shirts, balls and backpacks, among other gifts alluding to Brazil.
Carried out with the aim of promoting integration between employees of the two companies and their families, the action strengthens ties between the teams and allows the exchange of experiences in a relaxed environment. The interaction contributes to further strengthening the 17-year partnership between Vipal and Vaculug.
The general manager of Vipal Europe, Frederico Schmidt, recalled that “Vaculug is a strategic and extremely important partner for Vipal”. He added that “moments of exchanges like this further strengthen the bonds between our teams and promote a more collaborative and innovative environment. Vaculug does remarkable work in the UK and has a synergy of values and commitments with Vipal,” said Schmidt.
Vaculug’s Chief Financial Officer, Nimesh Purshottam, emphasised the importance of the strategic alliance, not only in the United Kingdom, but globally, given the relevance of both companies. “In our meetings we were able to clearly see the potential of the teams and how capable we are of joining forces to serve international markets effectively in a globalised business world”, highlighted Purshottam.
