Eucatex was founded in November 23, 1951. In 1954, Eucatex’s first mill, currently known as Fiberboard Industrial Unit, was launched in Salto where it started the manufacture of soft boards. It was after this that it started the manufacture of ceiling tiles and panels. It was impressingly the very first company to use eucalyptus as a raw material in the manufacture of ceiling tiles and panels.
Eucatex established its very first representative offices in Argentina and in a number of Brazilian capitals. With time, its production capacity rose to 100 tons/day, and in 1965, it started to export ceiling tiles and panels to export to Europe.
