SÃO BERNARDO DO CAMPO

“BRAZILIAN CAPITAL OF INDUSTRIAL TOURISM”


São Bernardo do Campo is located in the metropolitan part of São Paulo, more precisely, in the region of “Grande ABC Paulista”, which the cities Santo André, São Caetano do Sul, Diadema, Mauá, Ribeirão Pires and Rio Grande da Serra are also included.

With roughly 100,818 Acres, being more than 50% of this area an environmental preservation and with more than 800 thousand habitants, São Bernardo is one of the biggest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of Brazil. The history of the city is strictly linked to the country’s industrialization history. There are about 1200 industries which provide approximately 100 thousand workplaces. 

 

With all these characteristics and in a strategic way, the Industrial Tourism arose as a touristic segment proposal which identifies the municipality and therefore, making the city a reference as a trip destination internationally and nationally speaking.

 

Launched in August of 2013, with its first visit to the glass industry for sectors such as perfumery, cosmetics and pharmaceutical, “WHEATON BRASIL VIDROS”, started to arise with the adherence of plastic injection in August of 2014 (ZURICH TERMOPLÁSTICOS and FORMAG’S GRÁFICA E EDITORA”), which is no longer a part of the program since November 2017. In the end of 2014, two auto manufactures joined the project (SCANIA LATIN AMERICA and MERCEDES-BENZ DO BRASIL). When the year came to an end, five companies were already performing as official partners.

 

In 2015, BASF – WE CREATE CHEMISTRY also joined the program by visiting the factories “TINTAS SUVINIL”, “FUNDAÇÃO ESPAÇO ECO”, “FRIOZEM LOGÍSTICA”, “OMNISYS ENGENHARIA” and “MASIPACK”.

Because of the 2º Brazilian Industrial Tourism Congress, which took place at SENAC – São Bernardo in November 2017, “TOYOTA DO BRASIL” and “CERVEJARIA BALMANN” from Santo André, also became official partners of the program. In 2018, “ECOVIAS” joined as well.

 

“VOLKSWAGEN DO BRASIL”, “USINA HENRY BORDEN” (on the border with São Bernardo and Cubatão), and “UNIPAR” (Cubatão) are still being visited.
