The pioneering Cruzeiro plant

Did you know that…

FNV was a watershed in Brazilian industry. Founded in 1943, it is considered the pioneer in the freight and passenger railcar segment. Throughout its history, the company diversified its segments, producing chassis, frames and side rails, trailers and wheels for an automotive industry that was growing fast in the 60s and 70s. In 1990, Iochpe-Maxion acquired and completely overhauled the unit, which is today one of the most modern industrial sites in the world.
