Mundial Inc., headquartered in Norwood, MA, is the North American marketing, sales and distribution arm of Mundial S.A., whose corporate offices are located in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Mundial S.A. develops and manufactures over 95% of its own products including fully forged and stamped cutlery, sewing and craft scissors, manicure implements, metal fasteners and motors. Mundial Inc. is currently among the leading North American brands of cutlery and kitchen accessories sold to the restaurant and institutional markets. It is also a leader in the retail and industrial scissors/shears categories. With a growing business in retail cutlery through gourmet, specialty and department stores, Mundial products are squarely positioned as high quality and upscale, but with a distinct value advantage. Thanks to manufacturing efficiencies and more competitive costs of raw materials (Brazil is one of the largest producers of steel in the world) Mundial can position its top quality products at extremely affordable retail prices.
