Confirmed sponsors


Fimec 2022 had the presence of three big names as sponsors: Transduarte, Sicredi Pioneira and the multinational Covestro.. Known for bringing together the biggest players in the Latin American market, Fimec is a major attraction to the three companies that, besides lending their names to the trade fair, will also be present with booths to conduct business.


     The director of sales and market development for Covestro, Silvio Hernandes Torres, believes in the competitive potential of Fimec to connect major companies to Covestro, one of the world’s largest manufacturer of raw materials for the footwear industry. “Fimec is a benchmark that brings together some of the biggest players in the market and provides opportunity to present the Brazilian and Latin-American markets with the newest technologies available around the world, focused chiefly on the circular economy and sustainability”, he said. The Brazilian market is of th utmost importance to the multinational, which is looking to present its innovative and sustainable technologies and materials that may also contribute to making Brazilian industry more competitive, while increasing possibilities to recycle footwear, in an effort to constantly bolster the circular economy.


     Sicredi Pioneira, acting as a sponsor for the second year running, believes in Fimec ‘s ability to bolster its brand within the industrial sector. “We believe the trade fair is of fundamental importance in introducing our technology and innovation to the sector. We have taken on the mission of showing that Sicredi offers comprehensive solutions for industry, too. This is what led us to be a sponsor for the first time in 2020 and to maintain that sponsorship in the coming year”, states Solon Stahl, CEO of Sicredi Pioneira. He explained further that the sponsorship is in line with Sicredi’s proposal. “”We must also consider that all the decisions made by the cooperative are in line with our proposal, namely to ‘build better communities together’. Within this context, a trade fair always bolsters business, generating income, maintenance or increasing jobs and income and, thus, something fundamental to building more resilient communities, reiterates Stahl.


     Transduarte, a company specialized in the transport and logistics of components, machines, equipment and chemical raw materials for the footwear sector, has been a Fimec partner for over 15 and continues its support. “We believe that Fimec will be a starting point to the market’s post-pandemic recovery. The footwear sector was severely affected, and the trade fair will be an opportunity to present new features and the strength of our sector”, states Filipe Baum, commercial manager. He went on to discuss the sector’s recovery. “The trade fair will be essential to the market’s recovery. We simply cannot afford to stop any longer, though, of course, all services must be taken up again while respecting the safety measures recommended by competent bodies”, said Baum.
