Founded in 1987, Metroval started operations under the name Tecnobrás, producing positive displacement meters for oval gears under license from the German company Bopp & Reuther.
In 1988, the company changed its name to Metroval - which was born from the key words of its performance at that time: metrology and oval, the shape of the essential gear of the manufactured meters. In 1989, already installed in the building where its headquarters are still located, in Nova Odessa, a city in the interior of the state of São Paulo, it had doubled its number of clients and Petrobras was responsible for a significant part of its order book.
During the 1990s, it signed a technical collaboration agreement with the German company Rheonik, with another technology transfer contract, guaranteeing the pioneering production of mass meters by Coriolis Effect, in Brazil.
It was the first company of its size to achieve ISO 9000 certification in the segment, and it expanded its presence in the oil and gas market, whether onshore fields or offshore platforms. It was also in the 90s that it started to be present in the gas segment with equipment for CNG and LPG.
In the late 90’s Metroval began to conquer the world with exports, especially to Canada. In 2000, it participated in the creation of joint ordinance number 1 ANP/INMETRO, which changed the philosophy and criteria for measuring oil in Brazil. Responsible for adapting and maintaining the measurement systems on 14 oil platforms in the Campos Basin, it installed and maintains a branch in Macaé/RJ, with more than 100 employees.
With more than three decades of experience, Metroval today is proud to have more than 30,000 meters sold to more than 6,000 clients. A genuinely Brazilian company and a national leader in measurement technology, it completely dominates the production cycle of meters and flow measurement systems, generating the continuous development of fluid control solutions.
