Latex Balloons Made in Brazil | MADE HERE | Popular Mechanics

In São Roque, Brazil, the balloon industry is poppin’—at least, figuratively. In this “MADE HERE,” Valter N. Sakaguchi, production supervisor at Latex São Roque, walks us through the latex balloon factory he’s worked at for the better part of three decades. Originally, the company used Brazilian latex until demand became so great that it had to start importing latex to keep its production up. Now, Latex São Roque only uses imported latex.
