ANDRITZ Sindus History

Six college students start a business in maintenance and repair of instruments for industrial laboratories.


A special gas analyzer is developed, focusing on continuous process industries. In the same year, the first TRS (Total Reduced Sulphur) analyzer is sold to the Riocell pulp mill (today CMPC Guaiba), marking the company's entry into the pulp and paper segment.


Riocell outsources the analyzers and Sindus begins its history of providing industrial maintenance services.


Riocell also outsources instrumentation, electrical automation, and metrology. Soon after, more customers appear from several other industries (oil and gas, mining, chemicals, etc.)

2005Sindus develops process optimization software, the “Sindus OPP”, which has become the premium product offered by the company for process optimization. Also, an online asset management platform for maintenance contracts is set up.

The ANDRITZ GROUP acquires 50% of Sindus’ shares, creating a Joint Venture named “Sindus ANDRITZ”.


ANDRITZ acquires the remaining 50% of Sindus shares, forming the legal entity named “Sindus ANDRITZ Ltda.”, which operates the ANDRITZ maintenance solutions division within the PULP & PAPER business area.
