The history of the Wheaton Brasil Group begins in 1888 with the foundation of the T. C. Wheaton Company in the town of Millville, New Jersey, United States.
In 1952, after 64 years since its foundation and with many experiences gathered together, Wheaton Brasil was founded in São Paulo, being the pioneer, as it placed into the market the first penicillin vial produced by a 4 section and double drop I.S. machine. During that same year Wheaton Brasil started supplying flasks to the pharmaceutical market and also to the perfume and cosmetic industry.
In 1962, the company was transferred to São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo, introducing the first line of glass containers for the Food industry.
During the 70′s, the jar production had a great impulse. It enlarged the facilities reaching a daily capacity of 200 tons per day. Using machines with quadruple gob, they extracted glass in several colors, opal, cobalt blue, cognac, and green.
In November, 1976, they produced the first glass for Tableware. During the 80′s, with the re construction and upgrading of their furnaces, they enlarged the industrial park in order to satisfy this line’s growth.
During the 90′s, they introduced the first machines with electronic command system, stick packaging and thermal shrink packaging, oxy-fuel combustion furnace, computerized monitoring, colored glass by Color Feeder, automatic transfer and the acquisition of good quality programs. By late 90′s it was transferred the whole administration unit from São Paulo to São Bernardo do Campo together with the factory.
