Company

Arti-Plac Wood specializes in the commerce of the most diverse species of rough-sawn tropical hardwoods, for many applications, in any quantity, shipping anywhere in the world. All species retailed by Arti-Plac Wood come from legal origins and meet or exceed all guidelines of the Brazilian Forest Legislation and Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES – Washington, D.C.) Our philosophy is that of the rational harvesting of trees with the minimum possible impact on nature, always preserving the environment.

The origin of our company remotes to the early 1920’s, when the patriarch of a humble Portuguese arrived in Brazil. He started working in agriculture, seeking a better life for his family. After a few years, he moved to the city of São Paulo where one of his sons, Adelino Rosa, went to work in a woodworking shop, later on becoming a partner and after that, in March of 1958, became the owner, that came to be known as Arti-Plac Industry and Commerce of Furniture, Ltda.

With the growth of the company, the need to expand was felt and the construction of industrial warehouses began. With a view to the future, a ranch in the state of Mato Grosso was purchased. Besides the ranching activities, the property was also used for obtaining raw material, wood. A sustainable harvest project for the rest of the property was developed.

In partnership with local sawmills and in commemorating 50 years of the Arti-Plac company, Arti-Plac Wood was created with a view to export and market internationally the most exotic species of hardwoods from Brazilian forests.

The biggest issue for Arti-Plac Wood is to work in a sustainable manner to preserve the environment and bring the least impact on nature. Our products have great resistance to climatic changes and are harvested from authorized areas, managed, inspected, documented and duly classified before shipping. They meet or exceed all governmental standards, be it in Brazil or the United States.
