Description of Business

Primary SIC Code: 4924
(As filed with the SEC)  

We were incorporated on December 20, 1953, with our origins going back to 1937, when Ernesto Igel founded Ultragaz and pioneered the use of LPG as cooking gas in Brazil, using bottles acquired from Companhia Zeppelin. The gas stove began to replace the traditional wood stove and, to a lesser degree, kerosene and coal, which dominated Brazilian kitchens at the time. In 1966, the market demand for high-quality and safe transportation services led to the entrance in the transportation of chemicals, petrochemicals and LPG segments. In 1978, Tequimar, was founded for the specific purpose of operating the storage business. We were also one of the pioneers in developing the Brazilian petrochemicals industry with the creation of Oxiteno in 1970, whose first plant was located in the Mauá petrochemical complex in São Paulo metropolitan area. In 1974, Oxiteno inaugurated its second industrial unit, in the Camaçari petrochemical complex in Bahia.  ... More ...
