Projex Engenharia was established in 1969, and focuses on civil construction for industrial and commercial customers in Brazil. They became a certified Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) with WEConnect International in November of 2016, when Monsanto told them about the opportunity.

Since then, Projex Engenharia has used WEConnect’s resources to attend events and meet directly with corporate contacts. Since their certification, they have made new connections with Merck Brazil and Pepsico, both directly due to their access to WEConnect International’s network and support. For Projex Engenharia, the differentiating factor has been the almost 50 years of doing business, the size of their company, and quality of work combined with the WEConnec International certification. “Companies are much more receptive when they are aware we are certified by WEConnect,” said Danielle Thome.

The company has closed a deal with Merck Brazil this year that will increase their revenue --something that wouldn’t have been possible without WEConnect International’s network and ability to facilitate connections. With a plan to increase their revenue by 20% in 2018, the tools the WEConnect provides and the significance that WBE certification holds for companies have been important tools for achieving their revenue targets.

Congratulations to Projex Engenharia on their new connections and contracts, and we’re glad that certification has helped you on your business’s journey!
