INBRA Chemical Industries
With the rapid growth of the business, it was soon necessary to move the premises in 1940 to Rua dos Prazeres, in Brás. In the years that followed, the company started selling in the textile market.
In 1943, the first major step was taken with the construction of a warehouse in an area of 3,500m² on Rua Serra das Bocainas in São Paulo, financed entirely with own resources.
In the 50's, the current facilities did no longer accommodate the size of the company. So a new plant was built in Diadema town on a 24,000 m² property. Installed in this new site, Inbra was now able to expand its product portfolio, starting the production of plasticizers and stabilizers for the PVC market.
Investing extensively in research and development, Inbra launched a series of new products, such as Blowing Agents (Azodicarbonamide) and Epoxidized Soybean Oil.
INBRA associates itself with a German multinational, starting the production of lead-based solid stabilizers for PVC and products for the treatment of metallic surfaces.
Alligned with our strategy of good practised, Inbra became NBR ISO 9001 certified, demonstrating our commitment to quality and high technical standards.
