With over 12 million inhabitants, Sao Paulo is not only the largest city in Brazil, but in the Southern hemisphere, and one of the largest megacities in the world. Sooner or later, every visitor to Sao Paulo will almost inevitably cross the Avenida Paulista. With its numerous impressive skyscrapers, theaters, and museums, but also the large banking district, the three-kilometer-long street is reminiscent of 5th Avenue in New York. It brings together residents as well as visitors – especially on Sundays: Then the street is closed to traffic and offers a large open-air cultural spectacle with musicians, dancers, magicians, and other artists.
What few people know: When the cars return to the multilane avenue on Monday, Huf will also accompany the numerous commuters. The specialist for car access and authorization is the largest automotive supplier of car door handles and keys in Brazil and counts the country’s three largest car manufacturers among its customers. And unlike many other suppliers, the car access technologies of Huf Brazil are also made in Brazil, just about 80 kilometers northeast of Sao Paulo, in the city of Atibaia.
