The trajectory that led us to be one of the main companies in the paving sector started in 1967 with the creation of the company Asffrio.

Over more than five decades of existence, we have gone through several cycles of development and growth. The first was in the early 1970s, when Grupo Petróleo Ipiranga took control of the company, changing the name of the company to Ipiranga Asfaltos. Then, in 1973 and 2000, we went through the process of incorporating the assets of other companies (Betubras and Cibec). In 2007, the company was nationalized, as a result of the transfer of share control to Petróleo Brasileiro S.A (Petrobras). In 2011, already under the control of Petrobras Distribuidora (BR), we changed the name to Stratura, which means “pavement” in Latin. In 2017, we increased our expertise and portfolio, incorporating technological solutions by unifying the operations, factories and laboratories of the asphalt division of Petrobras Distribuidora, which made us the market leader. In 2019, in a contrary movement, we returned to private initiative as a result of the follow on of BR’s actions by Petrobras. In all these movements, our company has sought constant improvement to offer the market excellence in products for paving and conserving highways and in engineering services.

In addition to our headquarters in the city of São Paulo, we have four factories located in Paulínia (SP), Betim (MG), Ponta Grossa (PR), and Maracanaú (CE), and 12 resale branches, strategically distributed so that they can serve our customers at home and abroad. We have approximately 200 employees committed to the pursuit of constant innovation in line with sustainability and our values.

The company’s most innovative front is anchored in the Engineering Solutions Center, composed of laboratories located at the Paulínia industrial unit, where asphalt products, studies, techniques and paving services are developed to bring differentiated solutions to the market. Colored asphalt coating (Pavicor), adhesive improver (Betudope Master), second-generation polymer-modified asphalts (Betuflex H Plus) using the Superpave methodology, special ecological packaging for packaging and exporting large quantities have already been developed there. of solid asphalt (Bitubags), in addition to Emulpen, an economical and ecologically correct alternative to the use of diluted asphalts, as it uses less solvent in its formulation, and mainly Modified Asphalt with Post-Consumer Plastic, an asphalt binder modified with discarded and recycled plastic, an unprecedented technological innovation in the paving of national highways, created in partnership with Dow and Eixo, adding high value to the recycling chain for the benefit of the environment and society.

In 2022, 100% of Stratura’s shares were acquired by Fiord Capital, an independent investment manager in Brazil, focused on creating value in various sectors, including the infrastructure sector. Stratura and its team, now under a new shareholding structure, continues with its tradition and firm commitment to providing excellent products, services and solutions, creating lasting relationships with its customers and generating value for its stakeholders in general.

We are a company in constant transformation, with the certainty that we will always be at the forefront of technology to better serve concessionaires, public agencies and contractors. As it is already in our DNA, we will continue to work always respecting the environment and keeping in line with the highest international technical quality standards.
