years of experience
Kontinuer’s history began in 1999 with the first professionals who today form our team, conducting prospecting in the Brazilian rendering market. The goal was to know and understand the needs of customers throughout South America. The solutions brought from Europe were well received by the market and soon the first continuous plant was installed in Brazil. Over a decade and a half, a team of professionals committed to efficiency and quality in machine manufacturing was taking shape. During this period, this team was responsible for manufacturing, delivering and assembling more than 150 Rendering plants and approximately 800 equipment units throughout Latin America, with the best technology available. Continuous processes, plants for fish processing and low temperature processing lines were some of the innovations.
With this vision of innovation and constant interaction with customers, Kontinuer began its commercial activities in 2017, bringing in its DNA the genes of quality, efficiency, and technology. The team is formed by professionals with extensive experience in the technical, commercial, and production area. We are located in the Industrial City of Curitiba and our facilities’ area is 8,000 m², wherein 4,000 m² for manufacturing and over 600 m² for offices. We have a complete and adjusted structure to service the entire Rendering market. We currently work with 100 direct employees and more than 150 indirect ones. The foundation of Kontinuer was guided by the objective that guided previous works: achieve advances to always deliver the best solution to customers.
In 2018, Kontinuer began to produce its own equipment, designed and improved by the company's Technical Department, always with the collaboration of strategic partners. Thus, the production of Continuous Digesters, Presses, Crushers, Mills, Aerocondensers, Electrical Control Boards, and others began. We also developed a Technical Service, which offers constant monitoring and maintenance, so as not to allow plant downtime. Always in contact with our customers and realizing their needs, we set up a stock for constant supply of parts. Over time, we have acquired know-how to reform presses, digesters, and aerocondensers from other suppliers, some working for more than 15 years.
2019 was special for Kontinuer, with the design and assembly of the first process plant in Brazil. We also installed the most modern complete line for the treatment of poultry co-products in Colombia and an edible fish oil plant in Peru. In Chile, Kontinuer installed a full plant, which was later expanded. This year, we provided services for more than 70% of the market of our former partners and customers for the supply of parts and the provision of after-sales and automation services.
In 2020, Kontinuer consolidated itself in the Rendering market in Latin America as a company with innovative solutions and with the best after-sales service. We are providing a continuous, large capacity plant for one of Mercosur's largest harvesters, and we have designed a plant for one of the largest slaughterhouses in Brazil. We are also working on the development of protein hydrolysis processes through enzymatic means, from fish and poultry entrails co-products. One of our objectives is to further consolidate the partnership with the Danish Oestergaard, for the transfer of technology and equipment supply.
Kontinuer constantly bets on innovation and we are always looking for new talents. We seek collaborators who desire to grow together with the company and our customers in the Rendering area.
