Eucatex Group opened its production doors back on November 23, 1951. It was the first Brazilian manufacturing firm to think about environmental protection and acoustic comfort. It was also the first company to utilize eucalyptus as raw material for producing panels and ceiling tiles. Eucatex unveiled its first production plant known as Fiberboard Industrial Unit in Salto, Sao Paulo back in 1954.The company began manufacturing soft boards and, later on, it began producing panels and ceiling tiles. From 1956 and 1965, the firm had launched regional offices in a couple of Brazilian cities and Buenos Aires, Argentina. After securing a market for its ceiling tiles and panels in Europe, Eucatex decided to increase its production capacity to 100 ton per day.
Since its establishment, Eucatex has bagged several distinguished awards and recognitions. The firm has featured on the Gestao RH Magazine’s list of 10 Best Companies in Corporate Citizenship in Brazil from 2008 to 2012.
