Innovation has been part of Tigre’s DNA since it began in 1941. With the pioneering vision of the founder, João Hansen Júnior, Tigre introduced PVC in Brazilian construction, as a substitute to galvanized iron pipes.

As one of the pillars of company development, innovation permeates all environments of the organization. At Tigre, the innovation process doesn’t begin only with the emergence of a new idea, but with identification of an opportunity and with definition of what may be offered to the market as the best solution.

In the condition of market leader, through proximity and relationship with construction professionals, Tigre seeks to understand and anticipate consumer needs, developing solutions that contribute to refining construction processes and improving the place where people live.
