Companies investing in Minas Gerais
The attractiveness of Minas Gerais as a location for new investments by WEG stood out after a lengthy analysis of several alternatives across Brazil. In addition to support from the Minas Gerais State Government, through Invest Minas and the Betim Municipal Authority, we will enjoy a thriving market, privileged location, access to strategic routes, and a robust industrial culture, underpinned by a sound educational base and first-rate technical and higher-education courses, ensuring the availability of a qualified workforce, says Manfred (director).
We shall be commencing our manufacturing operations in the third quarter of 2024, hopefully in July. We have a number of investments planned, and we are certain that they will be brought to fruition with the ongoing support we receive.
Eric Wang, Midea Global President
Thanks to the Agency, Yara has access to the different State Government segments responsible for the licensing and tax characterization of our project, with ongoing professional dialogue. This has enabled us to move forward on relevant matters in the sector agenda, and those concerning our operations

Invest Minas has wholeheartedly supported all of our requirements. The agency has unswervingly expedited our dealings with the different regulators, such as the MG Board of Trade (JUCEMG) and the State Treasury Secretary, for example. They have also facilitated a channel of communication with the Minas Gerais Federation of Industries (FIEMG), while also steering us through the tax incentives. This assertive support has, for us, opened doors into the state, guiding us along the best pathways. If it hadn’t been for Invest Minas, we would not be at such an advanced stage, and would probably not have arrived at where we are now.
Aloizio Teixeira, CEO of Tangará – Food Service
The technical support we received from the Treasury Secretary and Invest Minas is well worthy of mention.
