We have 3,000 people working together around a single objective: to develop cutting edge engineering solutions, always basing our actions on ethics and transparency with clients, partners and employees.

In the course of our history, we have accumulated a wealth of know-how in high complexity works that include hydroelectric power plants, sewerage projects, road works, buildings and industrial plants. With each project that is developed, we strengthen our construction and management capability through always implementing the best practices in accordance with international standards.

We began with a dream and, over the last decades, we and our predecessors have worked to make it come true, but there is still a lot to be done. It is a challenge as well as an honor to preside over a company with Cesbe’s history. I have taken on this mission with the responsibility of one who wanted and still wants to place one more brick in this solid structure, and, for this, I have as my allies competent and committed managers.

We have inherited from the founders a set of rules based on three important pillars: trust, quality and respect. These are our true engines that have kept us standing and which, certainly, will take us much further, because this is what we teach to the ones who join us, improving day after day.

Nowadays, our clients recognize us as an ethical company, as a high-quality service provider that helps them to transform their projects into reality.

We look for professionals with character and team spirit, people we have something in common with and who we can count on for the most daring plans. It is through the small successions, achieving new positions just like children who follow their parents’ example and become our employees, that we realize this our way of growing: giving an opportunity to the new talents. Here, we value the life of our employees and third parties, because they are vital for us.

Our role goes beyond constructing works. We have the mission to build a better country and better cities, and, for this reason, we try to develop better citizens, investing in cultural and social projects, generating jobs and income in several regions of Brazil and taking good care of the environment.

What about the future? We will continue focused on the training of the people and the strengthening of our values.

To keep ourselves ahead, we employ highly qualified people for our works and the equipment necessary for the technological control. Due to the diversity of the working areas, the company prepares a tactical planning for each work, defining critical items to be controlled. There is still the commitment to the Work Safety objectives, part of its quality plan.

The management of the safety system is based on rigid controls, according to the requirement of the PPRA, PCMAT and PCMSO legal programs in all the planning development phases, control and continuous evaluation of the execution of the projects.

We provide continuous campaigns on safety and medicine so that our employees have the necessary knowledge in a tangible and simple manner.

70 years ago, we were born with an ideal. This ideal only became reality due to the people that we could count on throughout our history. Here, many started very young and we have seen them fulfill their dreams, build successful careers, form families and overcome challenges.

ethical conduct

Cesbe's operation, since its founding, has been marked by rigid principles and values. We are concerned with conducting business based on ethics and technical excellence combined with management efficiency and, as a result, the company is recognized in the market where it operates by its clients, suppliers and competitors.

CESBE’s Code of Ethics and Conduct defines how to act in relation to society as a whole: employees, clients, suppliers, public authorities, environment and anyone who in anyway relates to the company. It represents a general guide of attitudes that the people who work in the company must adopt, in all positions and functions.

The purpose of this Code is the simplified disclosure of the consolidated corporate values throughout the company's existence, so that they serve as individual and collective reference. It seeks to show what is expected from each professional in different situations that can be faced at work.

It is everyone’s responsibility to guard these values, which comprise one of our most valuable assets. To ensure that the standards are duly complied with, an Ethics and Compliance Committee was created that is responsible for preventing and responding to improper practices.
