Highway Equipment Company, now doing business as New Leader Manufacturing (NLM), recently announced its expansion into Brazil. The new entity, New Leader Comércio de Equipamentos Agrícolas e Serviços Limitada (New Leader Brazil), established its facility and parts warehouse in Assis, São Paulo. With its extensive John Deere and AGCO dealer network, NLM is particularly excited about the new opportunities the New Leader Brazil location will provide. Partnering with a local Brazilian manufacturer, all products will be manufactured in Brazil based on NLM’s unique patented designs, and qualified to FINAME, the main credit line used by farmers. NLM is dedicating sales, product support, training, and warehousing resources to the São Paulo facility to provide its customers with the premier service and support for which NLM is known.
As the leading manufacturer of dry crop nutrient applicators, NLM recognizes the global need for high quality equipment that enhances performance and productivity. The pull-type spinner spreader especially designed for the Brazilian market, and first product manufactured by New Leader Brazil, represents a major step in NLM’s international growth. This high-performance fertilizer and lime spreader gives operators the ability to efficiently and consistently apply fertilizer up to 30 m widths, and lime to 18 m widths, with variable rate capabilities. Launched at the Coopavel Show in February 2018, the new spinner spreader will be highlighted at the Agrishow in Ribeirão Preto.

Brazil native and General Manager of New Leader South America, Anna Graf, will lead New Leader Brazil and, together with Product Specialist Caio Orsi and Product Sales and Support Coordinator Sarah de Oliveria, continue NLM’s commitment to excellence in São Paulo.
