I must start from the very beginning, from the time I was a little child...
I listened my father speaking about cork every day, feeding the endless curiosity of a little boy about this amazing, natural and beautiful product... Those were very impressing lessons from a man who always worked with cork. Who loved cork!
A man that knew cork as very few could ever know. I still remember those early mornings when I joined him to see the harvest of the cork from the tree as I also remember the days spent with my friends playing around the cork piles with our cork toys.
Later, many years later in mid 80's, I had the possibility to make my dream come true and apply all the lessons I had about cork. I started the production of cork floorings based on very simple but extremely strict rules: quality, innovation and fair relationships.
Today, more than 20 years from that day the mentality is still the same, and although these years have been showing to me that not all people think the same way, I am proud that my kids decided to join me in the company. They share with me the same vision and the same principles I shared with my father!
"Yes, we can".
