Orpak Expands Operations in Brazil with the Acquisition of Microsffer

December 12th, 2016 - Orpak Systems, a leading solution and service provider for retail gas stations and commercial fleets, announced today the acquisition of Microsffer, one of Brazil’s leading providers of fiscal fuel station management software in the fuel retail industry.

Headquartered in São Paulo, Microsffer is the market leader in management solutions for retail fuel stations, providing a wide range of services, software, and head office solutions, as well as 24/7 support center. With a substantial market share in the main regions of Brazil, Microsffer’s acquisition substantially increases Orpak’s presence and strengthens its brand in Brazil’s fuel market. Orpak is currently the first global retail management provider to move into Brazil. Together with Microsffer, Orpak will promote its world-renowned ForeFuel (Fuel Payment by Vehicle’s RFID) solution, as well as its analytics-based Wet Stock Management and cloud solutions.

Marcos Dal Bom, Microsffer CEO, will continue to manage the company as an Orpak subsidiary. Microsffer’s local installation, field support, and 24/7 call center capabilities will facilitate Orpak’s growth and activities in Brazil’s Retail and Homebase (Commercial Fleets) segments. “We are excited to be part of Orpak and see great synergy between Microsffer and Orpak”, says Marcos Dal Bom. “Microsffer has distinct know-how and experience in the highly regulated and fiscal driven Brazilian market, while Orpak brings global strength and a strong brand to the market. We are looking forward offering Orpak’s advanced value-added solutions to our customers all over Brazil”.

“We value Microsffer’s customers and are fully committed to ensure the level of service we will provide them. Together with Orpak, Microsffer will continue its growth, expanding its presence nationwide with its locally approved station management and fiscal solutions in addition to Orpak’s value-added proposition”, said Sergio Sborovsky, Vice President of Sales for Iberia and Latin America at Orpak. “Orpak is working tightly with all the major fuel retailers and fleets in Brazil and through this acquisition we’ll be able to provide the market with a strong local presence and highly available services”.

“The year 2016 has shown to be a year of growth and expansion for Orpak”, stated Shay Bakfan, CEO at Orpak Systems. “We have expanded our local presence and activities in Germany, Russia, Greece, and now in Brazil. The Microsffer acquisition is part of our continuous growth and investment in South America and in line with our strategy to enhance our software solutions. I’m confident that Marcos Dal Bom, who has led Microsffer to sustainable growth, will continue doing so together with Orpak”.
