Founded in 2006 by Luiz fernando Valente after gathering an extensive experience in import and export of machinery, parts and supplies for more than seventeen years, Syntex began its activities by offering integrated solutions in outsourcing, international Iogistics and customs clearance.
The sourcing services offered by Syntex have been ensuring to our customers , lower acquisition cost of imported products, improved efficiency in purchasing rocesses and optimization on the application of the purchased items.
Syntex has invested constantly in management tools, developing a proprietary system called e-Syntex that allows our customers on-line monitoring of the import process , control of inventory costs per product, sales price composition .This system might be fully integrated with existing enterprise softwares from our customers.
In the middle of 2008 year, Syntex was certified by Duns & Bradstreet as a reliable company. Based on the recognition of our customers, and with offices strategically located in Santos and Itajai, the company obtained the tax benefit called PRO EMPREGO granted by the state of Santa Catarina. This incentive is based on the differential tax treatment for imports of all materials released into Santa Catarina’s port and airport, providing a significant reduction in the final cost of the imported product.
