Nikon ceased all operations in Brazil
  • A Nikon do Brasil comunica o encerramento de todas as suas atividades no país.

    Em relação à Nikon Instruments no Brasil, as linhas completas de produtos de microscopia, bem como de acessórios e assistência técnica, continuarão a ser oferecidas no país pela empresa BioLab Brasil. Os outros distribuidores para microscópios educacionais e clínicos, Spectrun, Hoven e PMH, permanecerão inalterados e continuarão a atender seus clientes normalmente[1].

    Para produtos fotográficos com garantias válidas, é importante enfatizar que os reparos continuarão sendo honrados pelo Grupo Nikon. A assistência técnica e as solicitações de reparo de produtos em garantia deverão ser realizadas pelo site da Nikon do Brasil por meio de formulário online². Equipamentos fotográficos e acessórios que estejam fora de garantia terão os serviços de assistência técnica assumidos diretamente pela marca nos Estados Unidos.

    Caso tenha questionamentos corporativos e de imprensa, entre em contato por meio do e-mail: comunicacao.br@nikon.com

    Many people look at this like small episode, I suggest to look at this in broader way.

    it is big chance that Brazil will be going deeper into energy crisis in coming years, and elites will be able to buy cameras anyway.

  • Brazil has crazy crazy high taxes on imports, so even though Brazil is a big country, I'm only mildly surprised that Nikon might decide the place is just worth giving up on! I bet they don't have a distributor in Venezuela either....

    It is lot of countries with crazy high import taxers. And it'll be much more soon.

  • Yeah, it got worse in Australia recently (they used to have a $1K threshold! Which was nice. But now gone), and NZ is sadly looking to go down the same road soon under our Labour Government.

  • @IronFilm

    Labour Government has nothing to do with it, but inevitable capitalism conflicts certainly do.

    Note how in sync all things happen.

  • Oh yeah, both sides can be equally bad at times! Just in different ways. Two sides of the same coin.

  • Here in Brazil, in fact the import and other taxes are so high, that frequently a camera cost 100% more than in the USA.

    In a lot of cases, is cheaper to buy a plane ticket to USA and buy the camera there than import it.
