New name to correspond with global presence

Natrio’s origin began in Brazil in 1976, and expanded over the next 40 years across the globe to become a well-recognized supplier of sustainable products and integrated services.

In Brazil, Natrio was a pioneer in investing in warehousing capacity, port infrastructure and material handling equipment. Natrio expanded its warehouse and port operations across the coastal regions of Brazil lowering the delivered costs to the Brazilian consumers. In addition, with a focus on the efficiency of the operations, quality of the product and service and respect for the environment, we were a leader in investing in environmentally friendly material handling equipment and specialty purpose warehouse facilities.

In 2005, Natrio, ventured into Eastern Europe where it developed ports in the Baltics to serve the Russian, Belarus and Ukrainian market. Later, in 2009, Natrio expanded into South America, becoming Colombia’s largest soda ash distributor and expanding further to Central America supplying smaller countries too.

In 2010 Natrio established itself in Australia and in 2012 it partnered with the local synthetic soda ash manufacturer. Natrio seamlessly transitioned Australia’s soda ash market into a full import model.

Lastly, in 2014, Natrio’s growth set up a Chinese trading company to source different chemicals from Asia to the group’s clients in its key markets.

In 2017, the company launched the global brand, named Natrio, as part of bringing the global businesses closer together and to send a clear, consistent message to the market about the value of the Natrio business.

The word Natrio is derived from the Latin word for sodium. It reinforces the Group’s international focus and ability to provide services anywhere in the world. To add further depth, the ‘trio’ refers to the overarching trio of services – sourcing, supply and logistical solutions.
