Bondmann evaluates third unit

With factories in Canoas (RS) and Indaiatuba (SP), the Chemical Bondmann plans to roll out a new drive to triple the current capacity of 10 million gallons per year of products for industry, such as cutting fluids, biodegradable solvents, degreasers, waxes and cleaners. As the commercial and industrial Director William Bond, the third unit of the company should be in Rio Grande do Sul, in Sao Paulo or in Bahia. "We are talking with some town halls," he says.
Bondmann's plan is to put the new plant into operation in three years, since today operates at 80% of the installed capacity and until 2016 intends to start exports to South America and Europe. The future unit may produce "at least" 18 million to 20 million litres of chemicals per year and will require an investment of r $ 15 million, explains Bond. Part will be countertop with own box and the company will also seek financing from the Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social (BNDES).
With a portfolio of 11 thousand industrial customers in the country, the Bondmann competes with giants as Petrobras, Total and Shell, in the segment of machining fluids, and Johnson Johnson & line cleaners. The company does not disclose revenues, but as Bond, even with the slowdown in industrial production registered in this year, sales should grow around 20% about 2013. "In 2009, despite the global crisis, grew 12%," recalls the Executive.
According to the Director, to ensure an above-average expansion of 3% to 4% presented by sector in Brazil in recent years, the company has been betting on the post-sales technical support provided to clients by a team of more than 100 people across the country. Between 2.5% and 3% of revenues are also invested in research and development and three products launched in 2012 and 2013 are already among the ten most sold by the company.
"There are seven or eight years out of the portfolio the entire line of cutting fluids with mineral oils and semisynthetic [containing mineral components]," says Bond. According to him, since the company only sold fluids made with vegetable oils and this year launched the first biodegradable product of the Brazilian market and water-based biopolymers, which operates at lower temperatures and reduces wear of cutting tools.
