Since the beginning of 2024, BG Soluções Tecnológicas has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Zünd Systemtechnik AG and now operates under the name Zund Brasil. BG Soluções Tecnológicas was founded in 1981 by Sergio and Paulo Guerra and has been an official sales and service partner of Zünd Systemtechnik AG since 1990.

Zund Brasil is relocating its headquarters from Porto Alegre to São Paulo. With over 12 million residents, São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and the largest industrial hub in Latin America. A dedicated showroom will allow customers and interested parties to experience first-hand the many possibilities of Zünd’s digital cutting technology. The 10 employees are proven experts in consulting, training, installation, and service. Cristiano Guerra, second generation from BG’s founder, serves as the CEO of Zund Brasil. With the new subsidiary, Zünd can further expand in Latin America and take full advantage of the significant market potential.

Oliver Zünd, CEO of Zünd Systemtechnik AG: “We are very pleased to welcome Zund Brasil to our global group of companies. Working closely with our new subsidiary will allow us to further strengthen our business in Brazil and expand our customer base. I am convinced we will continue to be able to provide our Brazilian customers with the best possible service in the long term. The resources at our disposal and our new subsidiary’s extensive experience will allow us to grow further and continue optimizing our customer support.”
