Tuper received the IMEC award this Thursday, May 23, in Belo Horizonte (MG – Brazil), organized by the Instituto Mineiro de Engenharia Civil. The company was recognized as an outstanding supplier in the Materials/Supplies category for its Tubular Piles with Quick Connection product.

The award aims to honor companies that excel in supplying materials, raw materials, and services for the construction sector.

The selection process mainly considers quality and innovation, as well as factors such as cost-benefit offered by suppliers.

To make the nomination effective, companies undergo a survey conducted by a specialized institute at the beginning of the year. Then, the names of the participants are evaluated by a jury composed of engineers, buyers, and industry entrepreneurs.

Award Recognizes Excellence in Market Suppliers

The trophy presentation ceremony was held at the Minas Tênis Clube headquarters, in a ceremony attended by approximately five hundred guests. This was the 22nd edition of the award organized by the institute.

Representing Tuper were regional sales manager Heber Henrique Penow Campos, Carlo Falci, director of client company Stack Engenharia, and Prof. Dr. Nelson Aoki, who collaborated on the Tuper Tubular Piles with Quick Connection project.

According to Heber, “It is a great honor to stand alongside Professor Aoki and Carlo at this event. The professor is a key figure in the market. He simply created the concept of foundation pile sizing in Brazil, which is still taught in universities today. In other words, he is a living legend, making him the most relevant person to be with Tuper receiving this award. As for Carlo, our client from Stack, he is the most visionary and dedicated entrepreneur to the tubular piles solution we have ever seen. He embraced the concept and has made our system his personal project for market promotion. We couldn’t be more grateful to him. It is an honor to be alongside these two Brazilian references, without whom we would not be here receiving this award.”

IMEC – Over 30 Years of Tradition

Discover Tuper’s Tubular Piles with Quick Connection

The tubular pile system introduces the concept of Quick Connection for joints, which eliminates the need for welding and speeds up the piling process for different types of construction, providing cost savings, timely completion, and risk reduction.

The solution was designed primarily to meet a market need – the simplification of the jointing process in steel piles. It accommodates different diameters and thicknesses according to the load and geotechnical characteristics of each project. In summary, the application is practical, safe, and can significantly increase execution speed.

With great potential for application in various types and sizes of projects, from bridges, heavy industrial parks, and distribution centers to commercial and residential buildings, Tuper’s Tubular Piles with Quick Connection stand out particularly for their high structural and geotechnical load capacity, speed of execution – even on rainy days as they do not require welding, and their ability to be installed in various types of soil.
