Trust that generates results
How we started
Compañía Cibeles SA was founded in 1976, as a company made up with Uruguayan capital, with the purpose of exclusively representing and distributing in the market the veterinary and agrochemical products of Merck Sharp & Dohme (US-based MSD).
Starting in 1978, we also began to exclusively import and distribute phytosanitary and veterinary products from Sandoz (Switzerland).
In 1981 we annexed the MSD pharmaceutical line which still continues at present. The Company starts sepcializing in technical assistance, distribution and sale of products intended not only for plant and animal health but also for human health.
In those years, the veterinary products of the company TAD Pharmaceuticals (Germany) were added to our distribution services, with a wide line of products such as antibiotics, disinfectants, vaccines, among others.
In the early nineties, Cibeles starts importing and distributing the line of phytosanitary products of the company Anasac (Chile) in the domestic market. The import and sale of the Ordram product from Stauffer, an effective and recognized herbicide that was used in rice cultivation, is also being negotiated in Brazil; forming an interesting and wide line of phytosanitary products for different extensive crops as well as for the national fruit and vegetable sector.
At the end of the nineties and as a consequence of globalization, the Agro and Veterinary products of the companies represented stopped being imported and distributed when the decision was made to start formulating our own products in Uruguay, aiming at selling them both locally and overseas.
A new and promising bid begins here, which would contribute to further development and growth of the company. For example, the Agro line increases its market share, starting to export its products to different countries in South America and the US.
In 2000 Cibeles SA acquired a land with Industrial Plants, originally built by ICI, beginning the manufacturing of phytosanitary and veterinary products (injectable and oral) and building a few years later a Plant for the production of food supplements for ruminants (protein blocks, energetic and phosphoric).
As these plants were initially used for the formulation of agrochemicals, plasticizers, resins and paints, Cibeles SA made significant investments to adapt them to the formulation of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and adjuvants in Agro and to formulate injectable, oral and pour-on and bathing products in Veterinary.
Plants are built to produce a wide range of powdered food supplements for humans, and that is when the Cibeles Nutrition line was born.
Built in 2007
Built in 2012
From the year 2000 we began to adapt the existing plants, seeking an adequate and safe formulation of Agrochemicals. Accompanying the growth in demand, we started building new plants. All of them have invested in semi-automatic and automatic packaging lines, automatic labeling and induction sealing.
Glyphosate-based herbicide formulation plant (SL) – Built in 2008
Hormone-like herbicide formulation plant (SL) – Built in 2009
Special herbicide formulation plant (SL) – Built in 2019
Emulsifiable concentrated insecticide and fungicide formulation plant (EC)
Emulsifiable concentrated insecticide, fungicide and coadjuvants formulation plant (EC and SL) – Updated in 2016.
Plant for the formulation of herbicide suspension concentrates (SC)
Insecticide and fungicide suspension concentrates (SC) formulation plant – Updated in 2016
Seed treatment formulation plant (FS) – Built in 2012
At the time of the acquisition, we did not have veterinary product formulation plants, so we had to carry out the necessary investments to start producing.
Over time and for the purpose of obtaining GMP certification, several of these plants had to be rebuilt.
Injectable internal parasiticide formulation and packaging plant – Rebuilt in 2012 according to GMP standards.
Oral internal parasiticide formulation and packaging plant – Rebuilt in 2012 according to GMP standards.
Ectoparasiticide Formulation Plant.
Block formulation plant – Built in 2007
Bagged supplement formulation plant – Built in 2009

Mission, Vision, Values and Commitment
We seek to provide first-line products and services related to human, plant and animal health, which improve the quality of life and exceed customer expectations.
We aspire to be a leading company in the markets we serve, highlighted mainly by the excellence in the quality of our products.
We work to keep on reinventing ourselves in order to meet the changing needs of the markets and evolve together with our clients.
We aim at being valued for the great commitment, professionalism, and responsibility shared by every member of our organization, as a result of our organizational culture, aligned with our fundamental values.
We strive to achieve the greater wellbeing of our employees, clients, investors and society as a whole.
Values and Commitments
Our work culture is the result of a permanent construction based on solid values. We are encouraged by positive messages from clients, employees, suppliers and all those with whom we interact.
Commitment to Clients
Clients are what we live for and that is why we focus our efforts on identifying their needs and developing superior products and services to satisfy their demands in a timely manner. We aim for relationships to be mutually beneficial and based on the pillars of compliance, respect and trust.
Commitment to Employees
Seeking stability and generating the greatest possible satisfaction in terms of opportunities for advancement have always been our priorities, as well as training and job challenges.
We promote motivation, teamwork and continuous improvement, taking into account the unique characteristics of each individual.
We encourage the pursuit and formation of individual values such as integrity, respect, professionalism, persistence, and a proactive attitude.
We promote a comfortable, healthy and respectful work environment. We care about the safety, health and well-being of our workers and we do not tolerate any type of violence, discrimination, or harassment in the workplace. We materialize all of this through strict policies and clear procedures.
Commitment to the Community
Occupational Health and Safety, Quality and Environment
Our policy aims at a comprehensive involvement that goes beyond respecting and complying with current laws and regulations. We make sure that all our contributors are aware of the requirements in terms of occupational health and safety, the environment and quality.
One of our most important premises is to ensure a correct and measured use of natural resources, manage and separate waste from the production process, seek alternatives to reduce environmental impact and generate an awareness of work that encompasses a healthy, safe, quality place, while taking care of the environment that surrounds us. We strive for continuous improvement, reviewing and adjusting our Quality Management System in order to create value and sustainable growth.
We have procedures for the management of waste and effluents in the Industrial Plants, and we actively adhere to programs such as Campo Limpio, for the management of used containers as well as the Program for Responsible Care of the Environment (ASIQUR).
We have always taken on the commitment to contribute to social causes and we have had the pleasure of doing so at different times depending on the circumstances of the country, directly supporting or through endeavors or social institutions.
In 2009 we thought it convenient to prioritize institutions focused on education in low-income areas, while continuing to assist other causes such as those related to health, or in the areas where we are located, such as Capurro (Head Office), Suárez (Industrial Plants) and surroundings (Barros Blancos, Casarino and Toledo).
We understand education as the best resource for individuals’ development and training in the different stages of life, capable of positively impact the future of individuals and therefore of society as a whole.
