Motogear (manufacturer of axles, gears and gearboxes) founded in 1935, once it joint-venture with Honda Motor Co.,
in 1979, changes its production from 4 to 2 wheelers. Because of this new experience, the export department that was
already consolidated in the foreign market was dismantaled. So there was the need to create a new company for its
clients, that way General Products International Exports and Imports Ltda. was created in 1976.
Motogear´s exports volume grows as the international clients contacts are intensified. So there was the need to create a
company exclusively to export. And General Products Int´l was founded and established in Campo Belo at the city of São Paulo.
Visiting clients throughout Latin América, a new idea comes up: to build new partnership with others Brazilian companies
and represent them in the international market.
General Products becomes a purchase partner for Brazilian products, assisting all of its clients needs.
The company changes its facilities to a bigger and well-equipped Office, located in Alto de Pinheiros at the city of São Paulo.
The acquisition of its own warehouse, allowed it to consolidated goods from different manufacturers and dispatch through its own facilities.
Searching for excellent assistance, the company starts to ministrate technical seminars into its customers´ facilities.
GP participates at International Trade Shows and Exhibits with its own Stand. (Automechanika in Frankfurt/Germany and Dubai/UAE).
During the last few years, several commercial missions along with the government were attended. (i.e. Commercial Mission Mexico-USA), in the search for new markets.
Besides its own booth, General Products Int´l team participates as a partner with the manufacturers at the main International Trade Shows and Exhibits,
acting as their own export department. (Furniture Fairs in Madrid/Spain and Dubai/UAE).
As the business grew up, the need to improve and expand its facility came up. General Product then moves to its actual new building
with 2,000sq m of offices, warehouse and showroom in Vila Leopoldina at the city of Sao Paulo.
