Having been offering its innovative and environmentally friendly products for over six decades since its inception in 1951, Eucatex Group has been on the forefront of producing eucalyptus sheets and panels all over Brazil. Recently, Flavio Maluf made a major move in collaborating with Duratex in their operations. The deal involves Eucatex giving their farm in Capao Bonito to Duratex in exchange for the farm in Botucatu city which produces thin sheets. Nevertheless, the deal must be approved by CADE.
The Botucatu farm has over 280 employees and this means Flavio has to manage all of them and the production capacity of the farm is over 200,000 per square meter annually. Duratex, on the other hand, is planning to revive their Itapetinga factory to enhance their production. According to Flavio Maluf, the acquisition will boost the production of capacity of paper printing by 40%, fiberboard by 70% and the paint capacity by 30%. Besides, the new venture would reduce the company’s processing losses; create job opportunities and increase their operation base all over Brazil and globally.
