It has now been 40 years and we are very proud of our history, and that inspires us to do even better and more. Polo Films’ journey has included so many special moments and people that we might even write a book about it all… But let us not talk here just about the packaging market, labels, BOPP film manufacturing, results, performance, products and their composition… Let us share our history in the form of some lessons we have learned throughout all these years and the fundamental gears or our growth. Let’s go now?

OUR

HISTORY

1980

  • user-image
  • We were born from a joint venture between British American Tobacco and the defunct Hercules Inc. In April of that year, in the city of Varginha (MG), we turned the first key, of the first machine, with the first members of the team. The feeling of believing and the decision to make it work was what drove us since that moment

1988

  • We opened another production line, also in Varginha (MG). We increased our production capacity, the number of employees and the physical structure. Our challenges and the responsibility to continue growing in a healthy way have also increased.
