In this edition, Tuper S/A ranks 119th among companies in southern Brazil, with a growth of 74 positions compared to the previous edition and, among the top one hundred in the state of Santa Catarina, it is in 24th place, rising 21 positions in the category. In the net revenue segment, the company ranks fifth considering only the metallurgy sector and 14th place overall in Santa Catarina.
Importance of the Ranking
The 500 Largest Companies in the South project has been carried out for 32 years by Grupo AMANHÃ with technical support from PwC, the world’s largest auditing firm. It is considered the most important regional ranking of companies in Brazil and uses various indicators to list the largest and most competitive companies in the Southern Region, the leaders in Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul, as well as the highlights in 28 sectors of the economy.
The list is prepared based on the Weighted Value of Greatness (VPG). This index, which defines the overall classification of companies in the ranking of the 500 largest in the south, reflects, in a balanced way, the size and performance of companies, based on a calculation that considers the three major figures in the balance sheet: net worth (which has a weight of 50% in the VPG calculation), net revenue (40%), and net profit or loss (10%).
With over 50 years of experience, Tuper is one of the largest steel processors in Brazil. The company keeps pace with the market’s evolution by offering a wide range of products, meeting the most demanding national and international standards. The product portfolio includes solutions for the industrial, automotive, construction, agribusiness, oil and gas, and other sectors. In the construction sector, the company deals with quick-connect tubular piles, structural steel profiles, metal roofing systems, ribbed composite slabs, scaffolding, props, wainscoting, slitters, and black and galvanized carbon steel tubes for structural and conduit applications.
