Historical Scenario

Daring and safe
Insol´s Timeline


Shaped by the enterprising spirit of its founder, in June 2001 INSOL Intertrading do Brasil Indústria e Comércio Ltda. is born, consisting of a plant in Ponta Grossa, an office in Paranaguá and a port operation unit, Sulgrain.

The choice for Ponta Grossa was clear: a city located at a large road-railroad junction and close to the Port of Paranaguá. A grain processing plant at such site creates a big strategic difference to someone who was born thinking of a promising future, not to mention the significant grain production at the Campos Gerais region where the city is located.

Year after year, the idea was to be close and to respect the producer, as well as to gradually gain the market, with creativity and swiftness in solving daily problems, attracting credibility in business. All this led Insol, in 2002, to consolidate its industrial processes in order to provide quality products with no waste.

In 2003, the Group takes another step forward to enter different branches of agribusiness. TRANSOL was then created, and became responsible for conveying the companies’ cargo because of the great demand of the Group therefor and for business partners, in order to optimize freight costs. In that same year, Insol moves its administrative office to the city of Curitiba.

In 2004, growing at a fast pace, requiring a more transparent and professional management process, Insol Ltda. goes through a great change and becomes INSOL Intertrading do Brasil Indústria e Comércio S.A.

Always aiming at providing complete services and a full logistics chain, also in 2004 Insol do Brasil Armazéns Gerais was established, and warehouses were opened in the cities of Sorriso and Tapurah, both in Mato Grosso. The warehouses were duly accredited to receive grain buffer stock from the Brazilian Federal Government, through the CONAB.

Proving that 2004 was a fundamental year for the Group’s expansion, at that time Solar Atividade Rural Agropecuária Ltda. was established, to act in the agricultural production sector, and currently responsible for nearly 8,000 hectares of planted area at Tapurah, especially soy and corn.

In 2005, the Insol Group begins its activities as fertilizer importer and producer, in a leased fertilizer mixer in Curitiba.
Furthermore, in 2005 the Group’s major activity, soy processing at the Ponta Grossa unit, had a considerable boost from investments that increased the soybean crushing capacity at that unit from 600 tons/day to 1,200 tons/day. The unit began to produce lecithin, a value-added soy byproduct.

Such refurbishing in Ponta Grossa ensured not only a larger amount of products to fulfill the domestic and international markets, but also represented an increase of the already high level of quality of the products that were made there. Then and there began the development of byproducts meaning value-added commodities.

Grain storage, in the meantime, went on. In 2006, a unit of Insol Armazéns Gerais was established in Sinop, Mato Grosso.

In 2007, Insol Armazéns expanded further in Mato Grosso with the establishment of yet another storage unit in Nova Xavantina.

The highlight 2007, however, was the acquisition, in the city of Maringá, PR, of a grain storage and processing unit, consisting of a plant with an estimate crushing capacity of 600 tons/day, located at a 227,000 m² area. The unit’s several silos and secluded warehouses attain a static storing capacity of about 180,000 tons, including bulk and bagged products.

At a privileged location, served by a railroad branch-line and easy road network access, the unit is easily connected to the ports of Paranaguá/PR and São Francisco do Sul/SC. The need for swift operations and good logistics were essential for making the acquisition decision.

Because of its profile, the Maringá unit is capable of adding value to different expansion projects of the Insol Group’s companies, generating even more certainty that the path treaded so far by Insol is that of sustained growth, based on foresighted strategic decisions with deep but positive impact on all the different activities developed.

New projects abound. Ideas spring up. Some already close to becoming mature For the years ahead, we are thinking about new warehouses, the biodiesel plant, selling pesticides, the high-protein mill feed unit, and the Insol port terminal.

And 2008 is just beginning...
