In a statement, CENIBRA's management congratulated employees on the historic landmark and their work efficiency.

Ribeiro pointed out that such an accomplishment was only possible thanks to enhanced integration between all company areas and investments in new process management tools, which "highlights the employees' level of maturity, competence, and commitment."
Other factors that helped the company achieve such outstanding performance are investments in plant modernization and the elimination of bottlenecks, CENIBRA added.
