Tirol has opened its first factory in Paraná, in the city of Ipiranga, with an investment of over USD$30 millions. The 33,100 sq.m factory will focus on the production of long-life milk (UHT), with an initial capacity of 600 thousand liters per day, but with the potential to expand to 1.2 million L and include other dairy products.

The Tirol factory in Ipiranga, which was considered the largest industrial investment ever made in the municipality of the city, aims to contribute to income generation in the city, creating 160 direct jobs and activating an economic chain in the region, with approximately 150 direct suppliers. According to Tirol's Commercial Director, Jossemar Olivo, Ipiranga was chosen after a careful analysis of various factors, including the potential for milk accumulation and access to the market.

The Production line of the factory is fully optimized, balanced, and configured with modern technology and equipment of the latest generation. Additionally, it has an Innovation Center, which aims to develop new products and houses part of the company's technical team, divided between Ipiranga and Treze Tílias.

According to Olivo, Paraná is already one of the largest dairy markets for Tirol and this investment is part of the company's expansion plans in the state, in addition to expanding national and international distribution. The goal is to consolidate itself as one of the leading industries in the sector in the country.
