Belo Horizonte, 17.04.2024 - DMT, part of TÜV NORD GROUP's Energy & Resources Business Unit, has acquired a majority stake in the Brazilian company Saga Consultoria, bringing the company under the DMT brand umbrella. With this additional site in Belo Horizonte, the engineering and consulting service provider has expanded its market presence . As of 17 April 2024, clients in Latin America will have access to DMT's entire range of raw materials services and more through the company's new hub.

Jens-Peter Lux, CEO of DMT, sees the majority stake in Saga Consultoria as an opportunity to develop future markets. "Given Brazil's important mineral reserves, the country plays a significant role in the energy and mobility transition, digitalization, and increasing sustainability in the raw materials sector." Dr. Maik Tiedemann, CEO of the Energy & Resources Business Unit of TÜV NORD GROUP and DMT, added: "The country and our new acquisition also provide access to other key markets in Latin America, such as the infrastructure, construction, and energy sectors. We are looking forward to demonstrating our capabilities in this region under the DMT brand."

Led by company founders Saulo Liberato and Luiz Gabriel de Oliveira Lima, the Saga Consultoria team consists of 15 geologists, mining engineers, and technicians.

As DMT, Saga Consultoria now additionally provides access to the comprehensive range of services along the entire raw materials value chain and beyond.
