In 1970, Gil Pellegrini, then Corvette captain of the Brazilian Navy, witnessed a drowning death during the rescue of a vessel. The person who died was wearing a life jacket that did not prevent death by hypothermia. The situation really shocked him and he decided that after leaving the Navy he would be dedicated to create solutions that would save lives in case of emergency. In 1976, he founded, in partnership with the French company Angeviniere, the Inflatable Equipment Angeviniere Company and started the manufacture of high performance life saving products approved by the Brazilian Navy (DPC).
