Up to the 1950’s, Pindamonhangaba had only small industries, limited to the processing of crop/livestock products, particularly rice and milk, for local consumption. The opening of Presidente Dutra Interstate Highway greatly promoted Vale do Paraíba’s industrialization. When this process started, the industrial investments were first attracted by Taubaté and São José dos Campos, which led to impressive raises of housing and construction prices in those cities. Such phenomenon made other industries review their plans and install new plants in neighboring cities, which included Pindamonhangaba. With its privileged location, in the central part of Vale do Paraíba, near to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, which are the most important economic centers of Brazil, both as suppliers of inputs and consumers of industrialized products, Pindamonhangaba shows an undeniable industrial vocation. This industrial vocation is an aspect accentuated by the proximity of Presidente Dutra Highway and MRS Logística (railway company) as well as by its vast expanses of level-land, thus simplifying the installation of large industries. Such positive aspects led the Municipality to develop, in less than 20 years, an impressive industrial park, with a diversified and integrated economy. Different industrial segments have units already installed in Pindamonhangaba: Steel, Aluminum, Paper, Textiles, Plastic, Chemical, Autoparts, Pharmaceutical Products, etc.
