A Brazilian company, founded in 1986, based in the state of Bahia, is a manufacturer and experienced exporter of sisal fiber, yarns and ropes and is looking for European distributors or agents selling typically to the home improvements, agriculture and construction sectors.
The company is a family-owned business based in Conceição do Coité, State of Bahia, Brazil that was founded by a specialist in sisal manufacturing economy with great export knowledge. Sisal is the company's main raw material. The product is made from the Agave Sisalana leaves, which has its biggest Brazilian and world production in the state of Bahia. This natural fiber is of great socio-environmental wealth because it is biodegradable and its harvest generates thousands of jobs in the sisal crops region. Having in mind the need for growth and diversification in the industry due to demand and customer requests, the company decided to expand the fiber business and also to produce sisal baler twine, yarn and ropes. In addition to the fact that sisal products are biodegradable, sisal ropes have the competitive advantage of being easier to tie up than nylon ropes for example. Last but not least, sisal products also give a more natural look to handicraft works. Apart from crafts activities, sisal products are above all used in sectors such as civil construction and agriculture. The company´s team is well prepared and has a wide knowledge of the industry that helps transcribing customer´s needs into product design. With a wider portfolio, the company started to operate on the foreign market, which represents today the major part of its revenues. The company currently exports to North America (United States, Canada), Russia, China and North Africa (Egypt, Algeria). The company would like to expend its business to European markets, and is therefore looking for agents and distributors with know-how of agribusiness or civil construction sectors in Europe.
