Brazilian company to open North American headquarters in Henrico County
CTA Plus, a Brazilian technology company focused on transport systems, plans to open its North American headquarters in Henrico County.
The Greater Richmond Partnership said the company will introduce a new American brand called Link2pump. CTA plans to hire five employees within a year and invest up to $350,000.
The company signed a lease at 4908 Dominion Blvd. in Glen Allen’s Innsbrook Office Park.
CTA Plus was first contacted by the partnership during a marketing mission to Brazil in April 2016.
The company said it had considered locations such as Florida and California but picked the Richmond region because of its strategic location to marketing its product to Canada, Europe and Latin America.
CTA operates in the automotive sector with a focus on transport systems. Link2Pump is a device for automated online fuel consumption control for company fleets.
The web-based device can be accessed from any computer or smartphone and automates pumps located in yards and internal fueling garages.
The device provides real-time monitoring of fueling date and time, fueling volume, fueling agent, distance traveled/hours worked, average consumption and storage in the tank.
The Greater Richmond Partnership is a regional economic development organization serving Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico.
