Founded in 1983 in Novo Hamburgo, in the southernmost Brazilian state, Rio Grande do Sul, under the name Gil Moehlecke, the company was dedicated in its inception to the representation of industries related to the production of rubber for footwear and packages.
In 1996, the company was transformed into a footwear components industry and then moved to bigger premises, on São Francisco de Paula Street, having its name changed to TACOSOLA.
Two years later, TACOSOLA began manufacturing soles for sports footwear, one of the greatest market trumps until today.
In 1999, a new factory was opened on Tibet Street, targeting the soles production. A year later, the construction of the industrial park started right next to BR116, one of the most important motorways in the south of Brazil. In 2002, both premises were joined in a single site, where EVA manufacturing started.
So that the product line is completed, TACOSOLA started manufacturing rubber painted sheets in 2006 and was then acknowledged as one of the top industries in its sector.
TACOSOLA’s sister company, EVASOLA was created in Franca, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, in an attempt to diminish the distance between the company and its customers, as Rio Grande do Sul is a bit afar from the industrial and economic centre of Brazil, São Paulo.
EVASOLA has been operating since 1999 after an acquisition of an old company in the city. In 2003, the productive capacity of then TACOSOLA FRANCA was at full throttle, what motivated the group to highly invest in a new factory, opened in 2004 with over 100 employees. Currently, besides manufacturing rubber sheets and EVA, EVASOLA is a benchmark in the manufacture of sportive soles.
