  • 1938

    The commitment of Irga Lupércio Torres S.A. in Brazil began in the middle of 1938, when Lupércio Torres, son of Italian immigrants, acquired a small truck and founded, in São José do Rio Pardo, in São Paulo’s inlands, a company specialized in part load transport called Expresso São José. It was the first step in a long and successful path marked by work, pioneering, forward thinking and entrepreneurial spirit. Over the years, São José Transportes became Lupércio Torres Transportes, developing special projects and investing in human resources and high technology. The company did not take long to stand out and establish a solid partnership with IRGA in the special cargo and oversized cargo transport sector. Since then, IRGA Lupércio Torres S.A. never stopped participating in the country's progress. Thanks to its technical and operational expertise, the company’s name is marked in important projects, such as the construction of Itaipu Plant, hydroelectric, thermoelectric and nuclear power plants, along with many others national and international major projects.
