Madeireira Rio Claro was founded in 1969 by Mr. Julio Wronski Sobrinho in Rio Claro do Sul, a district belonging to the city of Mallet, in the state of Paraná, Brazil. Initially settled as a small sawmill powered by steam traction engines, In 1978 it also started producing native wood veneers. The production of plywood was established in 1985 when the company set up a new plant, holding its operations In Rio Azul, a city located in the south of Paraná state. At that time the company operated with 41 employees in its staff. Since its foundation up to 1998, the production aimed only the domestic market.
In Search of new horizons, The Rio Claro Company renewed its strategies to join the exportation market, firstly supplying the products to England. The development and increase in the production processes led the company to, currently, export over 90% of all production to countries in Europe, USA, Asia, Africa, Middle East, Central America and Mercosur. We also supply the domestic market with products designed to areas like Construction, Furniture Industry, Naval Industry, Road Equipment and Stages for Events.
