Notorious smalls ones

Abstract:
Dublauto Gacha is a small maker of components for the shoe industry based in the city of Ivoti, in the southernmost Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. Founded in 2003, as the arm in the state of an already successful company from the southeastern Brazilian state of So Paulo, Dublauto has ten employees, produces 200,000 metres of items per month and has customers in Uruguay, Chile and Argentina. The head at the company is engineer Evandro Wolfart. His curriculum includes a prize for the invention of a product that does not stifle the feet's pores, and a project selected among 2,600 companies by the Studies and Projects Funding Body (Finep), of the Ministry of Science and Technology, under which Dublauto aims to "incorporate nanotechnology particles into textile products." To that extent, he intends to interact with universities that already do research on nanotechnology, such as Unicamp.
