Since its inauguration, it has sold more than 200 thousand vehicles in Brazil and now has an annual turnover of around R$ 4 billion, being one of the 100 largest companies in the country.


In 1991, Mitsubishi Motors do Brasil (MMCB) was one of the first automakers to arrive in the country after the opening of imports. Six years later, in 1997, the company laid the foundation stone for its industrial unit in Catalão, southeastern Goiás. At this moment, the brand of the three diamonds started a new trajectory, ceasing to be a representative, to become the first automobile factory. in the country with 100% national capital and also the first to settle in the Central-West region.

On 15 July 1998, the first white Mitsubishi L200, with the typical Brazilian morphology, left the assembly line: double cab, diesel engine and 4-wheel drive. With 14,000 m² of built area and 150 employees, five vehicles were produced per day.

In 2000, Mitsubishi launched the Anhanguera I project. In the first phase, four production processes were verticalized - welding, pre-treatment and body painting and plastic parts - and the launch of new products, the Pajero TR4 and the L200 Sport. The built area increased to 44 thousand m² and the installed capacity increased to 30 thousand units per year, in two production lines. The body welding area and the materials warehouse were also expanded.

In the second phase of the project, from 2004 to 2006, Mitsubishi invested in the expansion of the factory, which now has 65 thousand m². At this time, the Pajero Sport was launched and the number of employees increased from 727 to 1,500.

The third phase of the project, from 2007 to 2009, included a new expansion of the factory. This season marked the launch of the first Flex SUV (Pajero TR4 Flex), the first V6 Flex engine (Pajero Sport Flex) and the first Flex double cabin (L200 Triton Flex). The factory area increased to almost 100 thousand m².

In 2011, Mitsubishi Motors announced and is meeting the schedule for Project Anhanguera II. The program aims at a new expansion of the production capacity of the factory in Catalão, nationalization of imported products (ASX - 2013 and Lancer Sedan - 2014) and launch of new vehicles. There is also a forecast for an engine factory by 2014.

The new projects are expected to create more than 1,000 new jobs and could attract eight to 15 suppliers to the region. Currently, there are 2650 direct employees, responsible for the daily production of 205 vehicles, including the L200 Triton line (L200 Triton HPE, L200 Triton Savana, L200 Triton GLS, L200 Triton GLX and L200 Triton GL), Pajero Dakar and Pajero TR4.
