Telit, a global IoT provider, has expanded its partnership with Hi-Mix Eletrônicos S/A, a Brazilian Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) provider, for the production of LTE modules.

Through this expanded collaboration Telit customers in Latin America benefit from the ability to take advantage of two major tax credits for modules manufactured in Brazil. It builds on the over 10 years partnership between the two where they have jointly manufactured 2G and 3G modules in Brazil.

"For over a decade, our partnership with Telit has ensured convenient domestic access to innovative, affordable, high-performance 2G and 3G solutions," said Daniel Carvalho, sales director at Hi-Mix.

"This expansion gives Brazil's device vendors and systems designers a broad selection of 4G solutions — and at significant savings compared to imported products."

Specifically, the partnership expansion gives device OEMs and systems designers with a 100% exemption from Brazil's Imposto sobre Produtos Industrializados (IPI) federal tax placed on imported products if they procure Telit's LTE modules from Hi-Mix.

In addition, customers receive the Brazil Basic Productive Process (PPB) tax benefit from the purchase of mobile modules made in Brazil.

"By expanding our partnership with Hi-Mix, we've reinforced our commitment to OEMs, systems integrators and other customers in Brazil and the rest of the LATAM region," said Dennis Kelly (pictured), senior vice president of sales Americas, Telit.

"Beginning with the Telit ML865G1-WW, users can leverage both Telit's leadership in LTE and a significant IPI savings, giving them both competitive and financial benefits that wouldn't be possible without our close relationship with Hi-Mix."

Under the expanded partnership, Hi-Mix will produce the Telit ML865G1-WW 4G LTE modules in April 2021, with future expansion to manufacture the ME310G1-WW and ME910G1-WW modules as well the LE910S1 Family of LTE modules.
