Siemens also plans to open a new research and development center in Rio de Janeiro, where more than 200 researchers and engineers will work on oil and gas efficiency solutions at the facility.

Additionally, the company will also spend around $30 million on a local imaging manufacturing and supply chain plant in Joinville as part of plans to expand the healthcare business in Brazil.

In fiscal year 2011, Siemens had nearly 10,000 employees and gained $2.8 billion in revenue in Brazil.
