Timeline

 

1986 – Embrart’s history started when a group of partners signed a contract to establish the Projeto Comercial Embrart – Indústria de Embalagem e Artefatos de Papel Ltda. The founding partners of the company had all the conceptual characteristics of a family-owned business. The first company headquarters was in Hauer, in a small establishment used to produce cardboard and corrugated cardboard boxes, paper artefacts and, above all, corrugated paper rolls.

1987 – Set on becoming more specialized, in October the company hired two mechanical engineers with a track record in the paper and pulp industry, in addition to qualified sales personnel and maintenance professionals.

1989 – Embrart took an important step toward expansion. It moved its headquarters to a much larger location with a lot more machinery. The new address was the Cidade Industrial de Curitiba, at Av. Juscelino K. Oliveira, 3580, where is remained until January 1999.

1992 – The company was now largely dedicated to manufacturing corrugated paper rolls using printers and corrugators. At that time, it had approximately 40 employees. Production also included paper tubes and barrels, but a change in market demand for cardboard boxes changed the focus of production. The barrel and tube factory was consequently sold and the company acquired printing equipment (Niwa and Peters), followed by a Simon printer that was first operated in November 1996.
