CSI and Agroindustry in Uruguay, a renewed history

CSI + Agroindustria

Our work together with the agro industrial sector in Uruguay begins more than 35 years ago. Our founders, industrial engineers actively engaged in the development of the sector, built CSI Ingenieros based on the expertise of engineering and technology associated with rice processing. After the company´s sustained growth by participating in several projects of this sector both in Uruguay and in the region, the expansion was strengthened by the incorporation other engineering specialties to the firm, allowing it to face new challenges. Today CSI Ingenieros, after three decades since its beginnings in the agro industrial sector, is a company with an international quality level that provides engineering and consulting services in Uruguay and more than 20 other countries.

Today CSI Ingenieros continues to bet on the agro industrial sector, one of the country’s growth pillars. In Uruguay, we have participated in projects for rice companies such as Saman, Casarone Agroindustrial S.A., Coopar S.A. and Arrozur S.A. among others, as well as projects related to grain logistics of national and international companies operating in Uruguay. Overseas we have participated in several projects for rice companies in the Provinces of Entre Ríos and Santa Fe, Argentina, as well as grain reception and storage facilities in Brazil and Angola. Expertise in rice matters has also paved the way for CSI Ingenieros to develop projects in regions previously unthought of, such us COFCO, the largest Chinese food production company, that in 2002 relied in our company for the design, detail engineering, construction management and commissioning of a parboiled rice plant in Jiangxi Province.

At present we are working together with Arrozur in a project of powder and small bran aspiration in its plant located in the Department of Treinta y Tres. Arrozur is the first parboiling plant in the country to allocate its production in Uruguayan and international markets. From more than a decade, CSI has collaborated in the enlargement projects of its Plant and its improvement projects.

During all these years CSI Ingenieros´ commitment to the agro industrial sector has remained as strong as in its early days, supporting our clients in overcoming the challenges brought by the market´s new needs and technologies.
