Experience
Founded in 1982 by the entrepreneur Silvio Tini de Araújo, The Bonsucex Group is now one of Brazil’s most successful corporate groups with its operations involving shareholding interests in important segments of the national and international markets, such as: construction, building development, engineering, mining, metallurgy, shoes, textiles, hygiene and cleaning industry, reforestation, agribusiness and financial services, among other operations, directly employing about 65 thousand people.

The strong entry of the Bonsucex Group into the mining industry through Mineração Buritirama and the Paranapanema Group was the result of the attraction its main controller and director always had toward this activity. Since the time of his youth he nourished great admiration for Trajano de Azevedo Antunes, the entrepreneur and founder of the Caemi Group, a wealthy, discreet and hard-working man, pioneer in the manganese exploitation in the State of Amapá. However, the practice of holding equity interest in companies comes from the admiration he had for the Monteiro Aranha Group, the model that inspired the creation of the Bonsucex Group, of which he became a shareholder.

The entry of Sílvio Tini de Araujo, both into the mining and capital market industries, dates back to the end of the 60′s, when he started acquiring shares of the Paranapanema Group under the influence of his older brother, José Carlos de Araujo, affectionately known as “Zé Milionário”, who was one of the company’s controlling shareholders. Later, he increased his portfolio of companies.
