Founded on August 16, 1978, SULPLAST started its activities with the manufacture of thermosetting technical parts with fiberglass reinforcement. Due to the quality of the products, the company quickly gained a prominent position in the segment and began to grow.
In 1984, following the changes in the market and looking for business expansion, the company also started to develop thermoplastic parts through the Vacuum Forming process.
Always focused on innovation, continuous improvement and sustainability, over the years new production processes were implemented, such as Injection (2011), Rotomoulding (2015) and RTM Skin (2019), in addition to acquired robotized cutting cells (2010 - 2019).
With constant investments in modern and efficient technologies, the bases that made SULPLAST a reference in the plastic parts market remains; integration, quality, trust and respect, are still part of the formula that made the company reach 42 years of age with solidity and broad growth potential.

Involving all in an action that, in addition to the promotion of environmental awareness and reduction of waste generation, also donates equipments and transfers resources to social projects of digital inclusion.

After stoppage between 03/28/2020 and 04/13/2020, we retake the production at our factory.
In order to protect our employees, their families, our customers and society as a whole, we are fully following the World Health Organization (WHO) safety protocols and the operational regulations established by the Federal, State and Municipal Governments.
To guarantee the safety of our team, hygiene and cleaning measures were reinforced throughout the company and provided hand sanitizer (70% alcohol gel) available to all employees. We also installed new washbasins for hands hygiene and started to distribute protective masks to everyone present at the factory. In the mess hall, demarcations were placed on the floor to indicate safe distance and avoid crowding. In addition, visits to business partners were preventively replaced by online meetings and a robust awareness campaign was developed to communicate the new security protocols and provide information as a preventive tool to SULPLAST’s team members and their families.
Temperature measurement on alternate days was also instituted and if any employee presents fever or flu symptoms, will be immediately removed from activities, instructed to remain in isolation and seek specialized guidance. But so far, there has been no departure related to Covid-19 diagnosis.
To manage this new context imposed by the coronavirus, we created a Crisis Committee to evaluate the scenarios and define strategies, so that we are able to take the best decisions (always in search of mutual benefit) in the fighting of this pandemic.
