We expanded our bussines to another markets with nanotech applications and started our new industrial plant construction.
We expanded our number of employees and invested in the research and development of new magnetic metal oxides, nanocomposites, thin nanostructured films, and special inks. We have also updated our logo.
We had our first certification in ISO 9001:2015, by DQS, attesting to our ability to develop products that meet customer specifications and are delivered under controlled conditions.
We started our developments with Carbon Nanostructures and other technologies.
We inaugurated in Lagoa Santa, Minas Gerais, our first dedicated plant, a world pioneer in the production of MICR Ink, in addition to the production of new special inks.
After the development of new nanoparticles, one of our magnetic ferrites was approved by a Global Company to be used in the production of Security Inks.
We became NANUM Nanotecnologia S.A.
Entrepreneurs from Minas Gerais invested in the company and placed it in the “Fundação Biominas” site. NANUM is no longer linked to the “Instituto Inovação”.
We created our name, NANUM Nanotecnologia Ltda, and developed our first logo. “Instituto Inovação” (Belo Horizonte, MG) and Professors linked to the Nanotechnology Lab. of UFMG become partners of the company.
