It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Dr. Antônio Ermírio de Moraes, aged 86, which took place this Sunday night, August 24, in São Paulo.
The history of Votorantim is directly related to the personal dedication and hard work of Dr. Antônio, who served as an example and inspiration for its values, such as ethics, respect, and entrepreneurship.
His parting is a very difficult moment for his family and all of us. With his faith in work, integrity, and social sensitivity, Dr. Antônio contributed to socioeconomic and corporate development in Brazil. As such, his legacy extends beyond the boundaries of Votorantim and is a contribution to the Brazilian society.
More information will be provided at any moment on the Votorantim Portal, on the website (www.votorantim.com), and by means of the internal communication channels.
