SSOE Group Expands into Brazil and Canada with New LocationsToledo, Ohio, April 5, 2012 – SSOE Group, a global engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) firm, has opened offices in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Toronto, Canada to enhance its local presence and opportunities with key clients within these geographic locations. The new offices will further supplement SSOE’s services for its clients in these two rapidly growing economies.


SSOE recently established an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil to respond to the growth and high demand its clients are experiencing in the region.

David has more than 30 years of experience managing industrial facilities. Craig Bowie, SSOE’s Senior Vice President of International Operations said “David’s efforts have been instrumental in the opening of our Brazilian office and the development of local partnerships. His broad international experience is a valuable asset in both Brazil and Mexico and will continue to support SSOE’s growth strategies in Latin America.”
