With a long-term business vision based on an industrial soul, Sonae Arauco is one of the world's largest companies for wood-based solutions. Sonae Arauco's commitment to sustainable development is underscored by forest certification, the implementation of a circular bioeconomic model, and the sustainable integration of recycled wood into the industrial process.
The company's portfolio includes a wide range of products that cover the various needs of the market. The range includes both standardised and technically sophisticated products. Sonae Arauco also offers an expanded decorative collection marketed under the name Innovus (known as Novolam in the South African market).
The company emerged from an industrial partnership between two major global players in the wood industry: Sonae Indústria and Arauco. "Taking wood further" and the focus on long-term corporate visions are the common aim of both companies. Sonae Arauco currently employs approximately 3,000 people in 9 countries (Portugal, Spain, Germany, South Africa, Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Morocco) and has 23 industrial and sales locations. With a turnover of 800 million euros, the products are sold in over 80 countries.
