On February 1, the president of Brazilian wood company Eucatex closed a very large deal with another wood company. Duratex is another one of another of Brazil’s largest wood products companies, and the deal between Duratex and Eucatex is allegedly worth about R$60 million.
The deal involves an arrangement to provide for increased manufacturing, especially in the area of wood fiber boards. By sharing some of the same resources and facilities, both companies are able to boost their productivity and thus boost their profits. In exchange for the services of Duratex’s processing plant in Botucatu, Eucatex gave them a lumber farm in Capao Bonito. Learn more about Flavio Maluf at InfoMoney
Eucatex President Flavio Maluf was the main architect of this deal. He released a statement informing his employees and the public about the nature of the deal. He said it would boost production of wood fiber boards by 70%. He also said that it would increase production in their paint business by 30%, and that it would increase their paper printing business by about 40%. On top of that, the deal will give the company access to additional markets both domestic and international. All in all, that is certainly a net positive.
Eucatex, and Flavio Maluf’s other company (GrandFood, an agricultural company) are known for placing a very high importance on environmental protection. In every aspect of production, and in every product they make, environmental impact is taken into account. Both of these businesses place a heavy emphasis on respecting nature. When Eucatex was founded in 1951, there were very few environmental protection laws in place. Brazil in particular had almost none. However, this company has made sure not to harvest at an unsustainable level even when they would have been legally allowed to. There is always a delicate juggling act to be done when harvesting anything from nature, and this company has done a pretty good job.
Mr. Flavio Maluf was born in 1961 in Brazil, and graduated from FAAP University in Sao Paolo. One final note is that the reader may want to consider checking out his business blog.
