In 1902, the German immigrant Augusto Emílio Klimmek disembarked in Santa Catarina. With 250 contos de reis in his pocket I was a suitcase full of dreams, he worked hard until he founded a brushes factory in 1929 in the city of São Bento do Sul.
With the dream of seeing his products in every home in Brazil, the country he chose to live in, he was inspired by the world’s largest flying bird to baptize his brand: The condor. And so, like this great bird of the Andes, his products would fly high and far, and would make people’s lives more practical.
His dream came true! Today Condor is the largest brush factory in Latin America – present throughout Brazil and in more than 30 other countries. It employs more than 1200 employees who work with great pride in the manufacture of more than 1500 tools and accessories for personal care and the home. Certainly you already have one of these products in your home. You can check!
Here we take what we do very seriously, and for that we are rigorous in all stages of production. There are many equipment with state-of-the-art technologies, research, testing and constant training, in addition to the control and attention of each of our employees to ensure the best quality standard. Want to see it? We prepared a visit to our city and factory in 360 degrees so you can feel here with us!
Our mission is to take care of people and their homes, so we go beyond what we produce and get involved in causes that contribute to creating a better world.
We keep and present historical records, equipment and products that have brought us here. The Augusto Emílio Klimmek Museum was inaugurated in 1999 as a way of honoring the founder of the company and all those who contributed to the history of Condor. Come visit us.
