COOL SEED HISTORY
Cool seed acquires a neighboring area, totaling 100,000 m²
Assembly of the first equipment in Mozambique and launch of the SMI - Multipla Flashing Dryer
Number 500 cooling equipment
sold to Semenetes Aurora
New drying equipments
Consolidation of drying equipment FOR - Indirect fire furnace, which was developed to aid in the drying of noble products such as coffee.
After years of research, Cool seed has consolidated the concept of SAX - Axial Flow Dryer. In the same year, negotiations began with Mozambique (Africa), and also the second industrial expansion, where 03 new barracks are built, is also acquired the area of a neighboring company, totaling 54,000 m² of total area and expanding to 12,000 m² of built area.
The tray dryer - SBJ, enters the market and has its first units installed in Fazenda Aleluia in Franca - SP.
Cool seed participates in a fair in Sinaloa, one of the main agricultural regions of Mexico, starting commercial activities in that country.
Delivery of the most modern equipment for Cuba, which now had 31 equipment of model PCS 40.
Developing new equipment
Within the strategic vision of the diversification of its products and after six years of research, the Air Treatment Unit - UTA and Axial Flow Dryers - SAX was created, equipment that demonstrates the enormous potential of application in various agribusiness sectors, for drying of temperature sensitive products.
Machine park implementation
Unit II was completed and the beginning of the incorporation of a modern CNC machine park for punching, cutting and folding. This is an important step because it inserts the company in the metalworking sector to give conditions of production of the new technologies that were in development.
Beginning of works
The construction of unit I begins.
An area of 30,000 m² was acquired at an average altitude of 750 m.s.n.m. in the municipality of Santa Tereza do Oeste, western Paraná - Brazil, to the new headquarters of the industry.
The company was growing at an accelerated pace, penetrating several Brazilian states and in some
countries like Paraguay and Argentina.
Dynamic Artificial Cooling
Due to the need for application of the coolers in the sowing, and following its vocation to develop innovative technologies, the new system of cooling of seeds in movement in the beneficiation flow was created. This one was baptized with the name of Dynamic Artificial Cooling.
Cool Seed Ind. And Com. Ltda. Was founded. in the city of Foz do Iguaçu - PR, Brazil.
The first years were difficult, as well as the difficulties of developing a new product, it was necessary to convince the post-harvest sector, lacking new solutions for storage, but with doubts about technical and economic viability.
After the initial phases, typical of activities of this nature, time proved that the enterprise was on the right track.
In 1999, a team of technicians led by engineer Francisco Ayala Barreto, the company's current CEO, developed an aesthetically engineered but engineering-robust rudimentary equipment that allowed the mass temperature to be reduced of soybean seeds, stored in bulk in 100-tonne silos at temperatures of 15º C.
