A dream in Rio?


TWO ARBROATH men are on a mission to help British firms make it big in Brazil.

Bob Dickson and Jim Cargill have joined forces to help Aberdeen and Rio de Janeiro-based Calibre International and Lonsal Representações, operating under the Entrada banner, launch a new website to help firms partner on projects in Brazil’s booming oil and gas sector.

EntradaB2B.com features a free database of Brazilian and UK companies willing to offer their resources, exchange skills, expertise and technology to make the most of opportunities in the Brazil’s burgeoning energy market. The venture has been set up with the support of leading Scottish firms Campbell Dallas and Brodies LLP and Brazilian importation agent/freight forwarder Nicomex.

The new website, designed by Bob Dickson of Arbroath-based AngusWeb, aims to provide clients with a ‘one stop shop’ of information and services. It also features an advice centre, which includes briefings on legal issues from Scottish law firm Brodies and financial and taxation information from the independent chartered accountant Campbell Dallas and its Brazilian partner UHY Moreira.

Arbroathian Jim Cargill, a director of Calibre International/Entrada, explained: “The website builds on work we have been undertaking for UKCS companies in the Brazilian market for some years now.

“With Entrada having offices in both Aberdeen and Rio de Janeiro and complementing the excellent work of UKTI/SDI, we are uniquely placed to assist companies enter the Brazilian market.”
