History: Pioneering Spirit and Tradition

We have been specialists in paper since 1889, with a wide range of solutions, high performance and quality, exporting to countless countries, with a broad portfolio of Security Papers , Fine Papers, Special Papers (industrial) and Premium Packaging Papers. We count on agents in all Latin American countries.

The history of the Paper Mill in Salto began in 1889, in the countryside of the State of São Paulo, being the first paper mill in Brazil and in Latin America.

The mill was designed in the same period in which the Republic was being shaped in the country. The second machine for paper production came in the middle of World War II in the year 1942, proving once again that we came to overcome challenges.

It was only on September 16, 1889, with the inauguration of the Salto Mill that the industrial production of paper began in the country, a milestone in the history and development of Brazil. Its owners at the time, Manoel Lopes de Oliveira, and Antônio and Carlos Melchert welcomed the country’s great names on the inauguration date. They were Francisco Glicério, Bento Quirino, Bernardino de Campos, Marquês de Três Rios, Barão de Tatuí, Barão de Araraquara, among others. Due to the great relevance of the event, it was featured in all newspapers of the time.

The first facilities contained an American Fourdrinier system machine, a boiler with a 30-meter-high chimney and a Hollander to steam the raw material. The State of São Paulo, strengthened by the coffee economy, had built railroads and supporting infrastructure, and well-capitalized, could afford that great initiative which was also made possible by the construction of a hydrographic canal, designed in 1873 by the Barão de Piracicaba. The canal allows the capture and flow of the treated fluids from the Tietê River. Today, another management team runs this activity, prioritizing it and taking every care to preserve the quality of the water and the environment.

In 1978, the company started manufacturing banknote paper in the country becoming the only banknote paper producer in Latin America. Up to this day, BP Security is a producer of security papers in Brazil for several applications, having banknote paper as a reference case for more than 5 decades.

As of 2022, BP Security is born with a new name but it brings its century-old history, pioneering spirit and tradition as references in the manufacture of the highest-level paper. We have merged our precursor past with the restlessness that keeps us always ahead. A new brand with the same concern and essence, prepared for all the upcoming challenges of a positive future.

Today, our cutting-edge technology for the production of special color paper, textures, fiber combinations, grammage, and insertion of security elements, allow BP Security to supply all Brazil and Latin America, in addition to some countries in Europe and Asia.
