Metais Capixaba was founded in 1991, with the mission of manufacturing aluminum ingots for small businesses that manufacture parts. We were Born during a scenario in which information was scarce and the resources were not at hand. In a moment of economic instability in the country, we believed we could prosper.
Aiming at growing and attaining new customers, we acquired our first spectrometer for analyzing the chemichal composition of the aluminum. That gave us higher precision in making alloys within the specifications requested by our customers.
Due to the growth of the company in the market the decision of acquiring a second shed was made, thus incorporating the new space to the original plant. Our goal was to grow and to better the logistics of our processes.
By working hard and being always in search of excellence and being able to offer the best regarding aluminum, we earned our first ISO9001:2000 Certification. That allowed us to define our fundamental pillars of continuous improvement and focus on our customers.
With the increase of demand and need for larger space, the acquisition and incorporation of a third shed took place, augmenting by three times the factory’s area so that we could properly accomodate our machinery and supplies. In the same year we earned our ISO9001:2008 certification.
Due to our expansion and improvements, we varied our segments in our customer portfolio and to better meet your demands METAIS CAPIXABA has been carrying through since 2015 new tools and quality procedures, such as:
Radioprotection control, Degassing System, Density Control, Metallographic Analysis, Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), IACS measuring.
We re-earned our ISO 9001:2005 certification in its new version focusing on the risk management and strategic planning, aiming at making our routine and our processes safer and more efficient. We then started to develop our exclusive Production System to our process. Still in 2018 we began the deployment o four system, which we named CAPIXABA CAST.
Upon seeing how much our CAPIXABA CAST system made our production process simpler, we figured out it was time to extend such modernization to other departments, thus we created the CAPIXABA REWARD, a rewarding system which offers our staff prizes based on performance, individual and collective proactive behavior.
At the end of 2019 we started developing a new system, this time focusing on the quality deparment. In order to minimize the amount of paper forms, facilitate and make easier conferences, processes, procedures and surveys, CAPIXABA QUALITY was Born.
In 2021 we completed 30 years in the business, and we have as our mission to consolidate the deployment of our departments with technology as our powerful ally. Throughout these three decades we experienced changes and revolutionary advancements, and upon observing these events we learned valuable lessons that tradition and innovation are not at opposite sides and when combined they pave a prosperous path of legacy that Metais Capixaba has been traveling down.
