The Eucatex Group has been making quality furniture using eucalyptus. Asides, the Brazilian company also makes construction and packaging materials like paints and varnishes. They produce high-end toys. That’s on top of owning a forest full of seedlings. From the word go the company set out to transform into the world’s number one environmental friendly business and it surely has lived up to that noble objective. Today, the establishment boasts of winning several top accolades and certifications from the leading environmental agencies. These include an ISO 14001 and the FSC Certification.
The group started operations in 1951, Eucatex has continued to grow by incredible gains. All that has been possible courtesy of the efficient strategies made by the chairman of Eucatex, Flavio Maluf,
About Flavio Maluf
Mr. Maluf is a mechanical engineer by trade, but he’s taken over the Brazilian financial world by storm. In the last two decades alone, the 55-year-old capitalist has built and run several multi-million dollar worth business ventures like GrandFood and Eucatex.
The company has towered high above their closest peers and competitors owing to their positive attributes. Mr. Maluf inherited this business from his father, and that trend will go on long after Maluf, hopefully. Therefore, the legendary South American makes it his first prerogative to treat his patrons like royalty. All the products, from the eucalyptus wood partitions, doors, and wooden fiber plates.
The year was 1987 when the young Flavio Maluf having completed his college education took up a middle-level job at Eucatex Group. For ten long years, he remained patient and learned all he possibly could on the job under the wings of the then president of the company, his uncle.
Flavio officially took over the company in 1996. Under his guidance and lead, Eucatex transformed from a local brand to a global brand thanks to the marketing capabilities of Maluf. They now have supply contracts in close to 40 nations. In 2014, they reported a growth of thirty percent and their profits have never looked more impressive. A few years ago, the firm broke ground on the construction project of their new branches in Sao Paul.
