In its journey of over a century, IPT has been present in all the stages of Brazil’s development, participating actively not only in the critical periods of the country’s history, such as the Revolution of 1932 and World War II, but also in Brazil’s industrialization, leaving its indelible mark on the country’s development.

Combining tradition and innovation, IPT is recognized in the national and international technical spheres for responding to the technological needs of industry and society in general, focusing its business in areas of convergence between its competencies and the priorities of the public and private sectors.
