About Cogumelo

More than 40 years of history

Cogumelo boasts more than 40 years continually exceeding client expectations in supplying products and services for composite material products. We are leaders in the sector and pioneers in Brazil in the pultrusion manufacturing process, thereby enabling the fabrication of novel products such as fiber glass ladders (since 1993) and phenolic resin structural profiles, which are resistant to harsh conditions of corrosion and fire (since 2000).

Since our founding in 1973, more than 5,000 clients have counted on the tradition and quality of the Cogumelo brand, whose values coexist with a capacity and culture of innovation, and a bright, young-spirited team.

Technology

Pultrusion is the most representative manufacturing process of those utilized at Cogumelo. The pultrusion process is a mechanized continuous fabrication method for uniform section products and is the only which allows for the large-scale manufacturing of structural composite profiles. Pultrusion is also the only process with the capacity to produce parts whose fiber percentage reaches 85% of the composite. This high percentage of fiber enables its utilization in structural functions.

Our R&D department, together with the factory, adjusts the technology to local operational conditions, such as local raw materials, temperature and humidity, without loss in efficiency.

Our innovation committee meets monthly, continually searching for evolution on three fronts: existing production processes, new manufacturing technologies and new products.

Quality Policy

Cogumelo is committed to promoting continual improvements through its Quality Management System, searching for excellence in its products and services. To this end, we are committed to:

Selecting and retaining the best professionals;

Creating a sustainable company in the long-term through our management pillars: meritocracy, leading by example and zero-based budgeting;

Offering the best cost-benefit options for our clients through technological evolution, disciplined processes and operational efficiency; and
