Integration of company Irricontrol specialized in software development
In 2021, the production of the youngest member of the Bauer Group, the Brazilian high-tech start-up Irricontrol, was integrated into the São João da Boa Vista site. Irricontrol's R&D department is still located in Itajuba's Silicon Valley. Irricontrol's focus lies on software development for the agricultural sector. Its 36 employees work in close cooperation with Bauer Voitsberg and concentrate on the development and optimization of future-proof digital solutions, such as soil moisture measurements by satellite or modern controls, with which irrigation systems can be easily monitored and operated from a PC or smartphone.
Increase of production capacity
In the meantime, the go-ahead has also been given for the expansion of production capacity in São João da Boa Vista. The existing factory will be enlarged by another production hall with an area of 6,500 m². This increases the entire hall area to a total of 13,000 m².
