The history of the Grupo H. Carlos Schneider began with the founding of the Casa do Aço (House of Steel) in 1881. This small business sold imported goods and exported native products, especially honey, fruits and dried flowers. With only four employees and a daily production of 2,500 pieces, in 1959 the company started to manufacture nuts and bolts. The acceptance of products and the growth rate of the domestic market prompted the creation in December 1968, of an independent company, Cia. Industrial H. Carlos Schneider, later called CISER.

Currently, the group brings together six nationally representative companies in different segments: CISER Parafusos e Porcas, CISER Automotive, Imobiliária Hacasa, Intercargo Transport, RBE Energy and Agropecuária Parati.
