In 1974, working as an individual agent, Jose Madeira was
taking his first steps toward making his international business a dynamic
reality, building relationships between Brazilian companies and unforeseen
customers all over the world.
The initial efforts took place in South America. At that
time, the political environment was very volatile. These conditions demanded extra effort and
determination to maintain this kind of business. Today, the relationships are
reality and, successful business relationships have grown with international
leaders in their industries.
In 1979, the activities of the agent spirit were consolidated
into a formal organization with positions and responsibilities well defined.
Thus, the creation of Madeira Assessoria e Comércio Internacional Ltda.
Presently, with formal companies acting as local branches,
operated by local people, the organization runs offices in Brazil and United
States. Additionally, companies acting as associates for development projects
and local assistance, are located in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay,
Bolivia, Venezuela and Ecuador.
With a clear sight to the increasing possibilities and in the
interest of the represented groups, the development of a location in the United
States was made a reality in 1991. Founded by an equally ambitious pioneer, John
Madeira, the new office was established in Exton, PA extending the scope of the
relationship building philosophy.
Introducing products to new customers and, likewise, introducing new export
markets to manufacturers in the U.S., M&P Technologies serves its customers
as representatives, with tenacity and integrity. In this way, it molds and
solidifies the long term relationships which have proven the key to unlocking
the gates of success.
