We were born of a dream and, over the last decades, we and our predecessors have worked to make it true, but there is still a lot to be done. It is a challenge as well as an honor to preside 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 takes much farther, because this is what we have taught to the ones who arrive, improving day after day.

Nowadays, our clients recognize us as a company with ethical behavior, as a service provider of good quality that helps them to transform their projects into reality.

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

Our role goes beyond constructing works. We have the mission of building 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 the country and taking good care of the environment.

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

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

ethical conduct

Since its beginning, Cesbe’s work has been marked by the principles and values of its founders, and, inspired by them, we are committed to do business based on ethics and technical excellence allied to the managerial effectiveness. As a consequence, the company is recognized in the market in which it works by its clients, suppliers and competitors.

During our many years of work, we have developed a set of policies, norms and procedures. Thus, with the objective of putting them all in one place, we have prepared a Manual, organizing and expressing in words our way of working.

This Manual is divided in two parts. The first one is formed by the Institutional Letter, including the Vision and Mission of the company, the main Corporate Policies related to all the involved parties (“stakeholders”) and, at the end, our corporate Values and Principles. This first part has strong ethical content.

In the second part, directed to the Organizational Management, the policies, norms and procedures for the practical conduction of our activities are established, divided into People Management, Commercial Management, Works Management, Equipment Management and Environment Management.
