    “This is an historic decision for us. We are presenting the brand of an entirely transformed company, which will tell its story from now on always looking to the future,” said Mauricio Odebrecht.

    He added, “We are not erasing the past. The past will not go away. It is what it is – the past. After all the changes and adjustments we have promoted, we are now looking at what we want to be: a company inspired by the future. This is our new north”.

    Novonor is born as a holding of a business group with 25 thousand employees and six companies in the areas of engineering and construction, urban mobility and roads, oil and gas, real estate, petrochemicals and naval industry.
