Amorim Cork Insulation is integrated in Corticeira Amorim and has a strong foothold in the world market, arising from a rigorous commitment to compliance with the quality standards and demands required primarily by the sustainable construction sector.
Its history dates back to 1963, having appeared this year as a test tube for the agglomerates industry, proving it is an industry that survives per se.
In 1987 Corticeira Amorim SA, as part of a strategic plan for the Group about insulation cork products, created Expocor, a company of Portuguese-British capital devoted to the production and marketing of expanded insulation cork whose goal was to promote and disseminate a product from which new markets and applications would arise, by customizing the expanded insulation cork, a natural product of unmatched features.
Amorim Cork Insulation appears in 1997 as a business unit Amorim Group, to produce expanded insulation cork and is market leader with brands Amorim (corporate brand), Corkpan (Italian market), Corktherm 040 (Austria, Germany and Switzerland), Corkisol (France) and Thermacork (USA).
In order to achieve certification and total quality, Amorim Cork Insulation is a company seeking high levels of quality and productivity, where the protection of the environment and the preservation of natural resources are a constant, clearly demonstrating its position in the community in which it operates.
