Headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Toyo Setal oil and gas company is focused on providing thorough and effective solutions to customers through construction projects that involve building maritime vessels for use in the industry. Founded in 2012, the business operates not only in the refining of oil and petrochemicals, but the other categories it works in include mining, steel, energy, fertilizer and integration technology.
Toyo Setal has been completing engineering projects in Brazil since 1965, and it was because of the company’s decades of experience in the oil and gas field that led the executives of Setal Oil and Gas (SOG) to go into an agreement with Toyo to merge the two companies so they could work together to advance in their industry. When the management team at Toyo heard that SOG was looking for a partner to help them increase their growth in the market, they purchased 50% of the company and agreed to share managing duties, and the name of the new business was chosen to include both of the companies’ initial names.

Together the joined companies took on projects from the Petrochemical Complex in Rio de Janeiro, and from Estaleiros do Brasil, which they invested over $1 billion in so they could construct a shipyard on the job site for the purpose of processing 110,000 tons of steel every year. There are approximately 200 skilled employees who work at the company helping with the architectural design and engineering of oil vessels and other associated platforms.
Toyo Setal believes in social responsibility and sustainability when carrying out its mining and refining activities, so the company strives to care for the environment by making sure that they don’t deplete natural resources while doing so. Led by President and CEO Katsumoto Ishibashi, the business has won a number of awards for its quality practices, such as the 2014 Innovations in Engineering Project Integration Award, which was presented to them in Berlin, Germany at the annual event called the AVEVA World Summit. Toyo Setal was honored for giving the best solution on the topic of Challenges and Advances in Integration Technology.
