Irani’s expansion project portfolio to improve competitiveness, production capacity and energy sufficiency, which enables us for the next growing cycle.

Gaia symbolizes the Earth, nature.

It is exactly from this infinite and wise force, of which humanity is a part, that our motivation to grow comes. Our robust expansion plan, with projects developed between 2020 and 2025, is based on our deep commitment to sustainable development in its three spheres: economic, social and environmental.

The estimated investment value was updated as a result of the increase in the prices of civil construction products, such as steel and copper, and also of labor, an impact that has been occurring in the market due to the pandemic, in addition to the change in scope to replace caster and wrapping machine by new machines of greater capacity. As a result, the total investment value of Plataforma Gaia increased from R$ 743,059 thousand to R$ 883,519 thousand.
