More than just numbers, what truly defines Tramontina is the constant effort to make people’s lives better. The small iron mill founded by Valentin and Elisa Tramontina in 1911 in southern Brazil was the beginning of a group that now encompasses 10 manufacturing units and has kept the century–old tradition of delighting people with simple gestures. The secret for maintaining this essence is believing in people. Tramontina values each one of its over 10,000 employees so they can deliver functional, stylish products to the market, bringing inspiration to people’s daily living and creating experiences to generate value and satisfy clients, consumers and communities. All this is apparent in the more than 22,000 items that carry the values of a unique brand. Kitchen utensils and equipment, appliances, tools for agriculture, gardening, industrial and automotive maintenance, construction, electrical hardware, wood and plastic furniture, and a wide range of ride–on equipment is manufactured for the domestic market and exported to over 120 countries.
