About Provale Group

Founded in 1971 in Cachoeiro do Itapemirim, State of Espírito Santo, Provale Group started its activities with lime production to Vale do Rio Doce company. Provale activities have been diversified during the decades, which provided the company with a constant growth and wealth generation in the region where it has operations. 

The year 1989 indicates the beginning of fine dolomitic limestone production oriented to the steelmaking sector in full expansion in the State. The pursuit for development was constant, aiming at the better use of white calcium carbonate-based mineral reserves. Professionals composing the Group performed restless researches and studies with the aim to reach innovative solutions and to supply the market with best products and highest quality standard. 

In 1995, the Group started a white calcium carbonate line production oriented to ink and paper segments. On the other hand, in 2002, Provale released a full mortar line based on plaster and cement – both with the chance to be designed and produced from sands based on carbonates.
Participation in Oil & Gas market began in 2007 with a calcium carbonate line, a product that places the company as leader in this segment. Baryte is an expensive mineral in the country and it is fundamental for drilling worldwide, which is also produced by the organization.

Clients from several sectors

With presence in the major diversified economics segments, Provale’s raw materials are part of Brazilian’s daily life. In iron ore, produced by Vale; in Pirelli’s tires; Amanco’s pipes and connections; and even in Unilever do Brasil’s toothpaste.

The tireless pursuit for innovation is found in Provale DNA, and in 2008, the Group presented a new industrial unit which was designed for micronized natural calcium carbonate production. Not long after, the company became the first in the country to offer natural calcium carbonate line in large scale with medium diameter, particles with sizes close to 1 micro and high chemical purity to meet the most demanding clients from Foods and Oral care segments.
