It is one of the most respected technical institutions in the world in its area of activity, having conquered the title of OSCIP – Civil Society Organization of Public Interest -, for the proof of the value generated in high-level training and information to the market.

ABM – Brazilian Association of Metallurgy, Materials and Mining is a non-profit civil association, whose purpose is to bring together individuals and companies for collective actions that promote the development of people, technical-scientific evolution, and innovation in processes, products, and management in its areas of activity.

Since it was founded, in 1944, it has developed several actions to ensure and strengthen the competitiveness of companies, promoting the dissemination of technical and scientific knowledge.

Aiming mainly at the qualification of human resources as a preponderant factor for organizations to implement innovations, ABM makes available a wide documental and editorial collection, an annual calendar of events (congresses, seminars, symposiums, and workshops), awards, and training courses.

These activities generate hundreds of technical contributions, in addition to promoting the exchange of information and the networking of industry professionals, professors, researchers, and students.

The Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA) is the largest representative organization of the sugar and bioethanol sector in Brazil. It was created in 1997, as a result of the merger of several sector organizations in the state of São Paulo, following the deregulation of the sector in Brazil. The association expresses and acts in line with the interests of sugar, ethanol and bioelectricity producers both in Brazil and around the world. UNICA’s more than 120 member companies are responsible for over 50% of the ethanol and 60% of the sugar produced in Brazil.

UNICA is managed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives of its members and a full-time staff of experienced executives, specialists and technical consultants. UNICA’s technical expertise covers the areas of environment, energy, technology, foreign trade, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, legislation, economics and communications. In late 2007, UNICA opened its first international office in the United States and in 2008, in Europe, as part of its policy to provide detailed and up-to-date information on the important socio-economic and environmental contributions of the sugar, ethanol and bioelectricity industry to interlocutors such as consumers, governments, NGOs, businesses and the media.

The appearance, in the middle of the 70’s, of Maintenance Associations in countries like Spain, Mexico and Portugal made the interest of Brazilian professionals grow for the modern concepts, methods and technologies available in the area. Little by little, the conviction that, also in Brazil, it was necessary to have an Entity specifically dedicated to the development of Maintenance, understood as an important link of the productive chain, became stronger.

The persistent work of a group of idealists led to the realization, in Rio de Janeiro, of the III Ibero-American Maintenance Congress, in 1983, an event that became an important landmark: the launching and approval of the proposal of the Entity’s creation.

Initially restricted to the participation of representatives of a few, but well-structured sectors, such as oil, electricity, steel industry and transportation, that embryonic group soon had the support of many others, imbued with the same ideal, working to accomplish that great objective.

Thus, on October 17, 1984, in an Assembly at Clube de Engenharia, with the presence of the most representative segments of the community, the Brazilian Maintenance Association – ABRAMAN was finally founded.

At 27 years of age, ABRAMAN, now adult and reinvigorated, took another firm step to continue in the vanguard of the market. On April 26, 2012, in an Ordinary General Meeting, it was approved the change of statute and name of Abraman, which since then has been called Associação Brasileira de Manutenção e Gestão de Ativos (Brazilian Association of Maintenance and Asset Management), in order to structure the development of new activities and broaden the scope of the association’s action.


To contribute to the development of the Maintenance and Asset Management Function, valuing its professionals, consolidating them as strategic factors to increase the companies’ competitiveness and to improve quality of life, safety and the environment.


To be recognized by the business, academic and public institutions as a reference entity in the implementation, promotion, valorization and dissemination of technology for Asset Management.
