Project Main Details
The Serra Gaúcha region, with its entrepreneurial spirit, was the perfect place for the installation and development of companies and industries of various segments. Among them, the ones of the plastic sector.
The first manufacturers found there, especially during the decades of 70 and 80, the ideal space to develop their projects and contribute to the economy of the region.
But after all, why is this important?
We started with the plastic, largely responsible for our history.
From a simple pen to a plane ... Almost everything around us is made or has plastic in its composition. Plastic is useful in a number of products, and has been so for over one hundred years.
Its numerous applications and advances in technology have created market niches and room for the opening of companies from the most diverse segments such as automotive, housewares, furniture, packaging, electronics, agribusiness, construction, health, sanitation, among many others.
Lettering – automotive, housewares, furniture, packaging, electronics, agribusiness, construction, health, sanitation
With the task of organizing and integrating such diverse sector, Simplás (Union of Plastic Material Industries from the Northeast of Rio Grande do Sul), was established in 1989.
This joining of forces intends to innovate and to represent the interests of the sector before the public authorities and organizations.
- Negotiations with the category;
- Economic, legal and fiscal studies;
- Event promotion;
- Research related to the sector.
In 2014, Simplás celebrates 25 years of operation, having great recognition before the community, state and national entities.
Eight cities in the region make up the group that has more than 500 members. These are companies that, per year, with a total turnover of more than four billion reals, process more than 450 thousand tons of plastic and generate more than 13 thousand direct jobs. The covering area of Simplás has the greatest concentration of plastic processing industries of Brazil per square kilometer.
-Over 500 associates
-4 billion reals
-450 thousand tons of plastic
-13 000 jobs
Plastic not only serves to manufacture products that make people's lives easier, but also brings many economic benefits. So, for Simplás, it is important to invest in skills, updates and events that contribute to this process.
The entity maintains agreements with various educational institutions, because education and research are essential for developing the market in a more and more sustainable and qualified manner.
In addition, it involves their own members in search for updates and business opportunities through business missions to various countries, national and international fairs, seminars, lectures and dinner-meetings.
And to enhance the industrial chain of the sector and its protagonists, the Plastic Merit Award is a form of recognition to those who, notably, make the difference.
To strengthen and stimulate competitiveness, Plastech Brazil is held every two years. The Fair of Plastic, Rubber, Composites and Recycling brings to the region national and international exhibitors and companies for integration and business generation. Plastech Brazil is considered one of the main events of the sector in Latin America and has created a new business unit integrating Simplás, which articulates relationships between companies of various sizes and threads.
Plastic is 100% recyclable and needs to be addressed properly. Therefore, Simplás is involved in the discussion on the implementation of the National Solid Waste Policy,
which debates responsibility over waste generated by businesses and the community.
You just have to realize the importance that the plastic has in our lives to understand why there is a big commitment in the development of this thread, that progresses every day and creates new products, new demands and new opportunities.
Simplás = productivity + innovation + industry power + competitiveness + sustainability
Simplás – the strength of Union overcoming challenges
