Our History

50 years building stories of trust

“Plaenge started so small that it could fit in a room; however, at 50, it turned into the largest construction company in south Brazil. This was only possible with the collaboration of people who followed our principles: to do the right thing, to be useful, to keep our word and to persevere.

Our philosophy has always valued the long-term vision We completed 50 years of a trajectory based on values that have been present since our origins, especially in trust with our relationships with our clients.

Trust built by associates who have to faced many challenges during these five decades from hyperinflation, several economic plans, stagnation of the 80’s, the Plano Real to global changes such as the opening of the market with globalization and the internet.

Trust built with each client that put in our hands their dreams of living with sophistication, comfort and elegance.”
