Eucatex history spans over six decades since its establishment as the first-ever Brazilian company to factor acoustic and environmental comfort and exploits eucalyptus as its resource for the manufacture of panels and plates. Initially, the then Chapas Unit specialized in the production of softwood fibers sheets and acoustic linings and later ventured into acoustic and insulation sheets. The company’s investment rapidly evolved to its current specialization in big civil construction firms and furniture producers.
