New film coating facility Brazil

The new film coating production facility, named “Aquarela” at the Incotec site in Holambra, Brazil is officially opened. The expansion is a response to the growing demands of the film coating market.

This is a strategic investment for Incotec which is not only about increasing capacity to support business growth. It also underscores our commitment to safety for employees and for the environment and secures our ability to deliver the highest quality product to an increasingly discerning market. With Aquarela we have successfully combined cutting-edge technology with maximum sustainability.

Sustainability is key

The new factory has an area of 900m², is fully automated and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Sustainability is key and has been maximized wherever possible. An example is the modern cleaning system, known as the CIP system (Cleaning in Place), which radically reduces the use of water. Photovoltaic panels have been installed to produce energy on site, meeting up to 95% of the energy demands, plan to cover 100%, with the expectation of saving up to 95mt CO2 per year. The project also includes a rainwater reservoir which will be used to irrigate Incotec's gardens.
