Founded in 1966, the company is strategically located in Brazil (in the States of Bahia, Sergipe and São Paulo) and in Mexico (in the States of Mexico, San Luís Potosí and Veracruz).
Unigel makes itself present in day-to-day life by supplying fundamental materials for the manufacturing of products in a wide range of segments, such as Home Appliances & Electronics, Automotive, Inks & Coatings, Civil Construction, Pulp & Paper, Packaging, Health & Beauty, Textile, Mining and Agriculture.
With sustainability and innovation as core values, the company develops technology and products that aim for social, economic and environmental welfare. As a result, Unigel has been awarded Ecovadis’ Gold Medal as recognition for its sustainable business practices and for the social responsibility programs implemented in the communities in which the company is present.
In 2020, Unigel launched the Ecogel line of products, which turns post-consumption recycled plastics and post-industrial residue into products again. With Ecogel, the company promotes a circular economy, stimulates the creation of a reverse logistics chain and nurtures the socioeconomic and environmental development of the communities involved in all stages of the product’s lifecycle.
