Excelling as a way of life


It was precisely 150 years ago that cork was at the origin of the Amorim group's history.

This unique material continues to be reflected in the active lifestyle that we share with our customers across five continents. We soon grasped the need to establish clear objectives, pursue them with determination, and adapt them with utmost rigour, efficiency and effectiveness.

We understand the importance of diversification, vertical integration and internationalisation to ensure sustained growth, and we apply these principles in our product portfolio and business areas, which have made us one of the main world’s leading economic groups.

"Studying is a precious asset, but contact with the world, with the diversity of continents, the analysis of countries, peoples' cultures, the experience of values and habits, will enrich any entrepreneur. No university can replace that."

Américo Amorim

Pursuing, consolidating, developing, improving and perfecting are requirements that we always view as natural habits. That was how, starting from a small cork stopper factory, the Amorim group has become one of Portugal’s most international companies, playing a major and dynamic role in the economy. We have structured strong projects, with a clear strategic dimension, economic rationality and competent management. The most important objective has been to establish an integrated group with a global vision. We have succeeded, while always bearing in mind the principle that internationalising is not just about exporting, it is about holding strategic positions abroad that bring us closer to customers, and provide us with a comprehensive view, thereby allowing us to provide customised responses.

Today, the globalisation of the economy challenges us to reflect, decide and innovate. Renewal, progress and technological development are a growing demand, to which the Amorim group has been able to respond in an exemplary fashion. It is therefore a privilege to participate in, and influence, industrial investment projects, to feel the permanent demand for research and development, to be involved in an era of new technologies. Knowing that our success lies in respecting the values ​​of excellence, customer satisfaction and people's motivation, we continue with the mission of fostering change, with discipline and entrepreneurial spirit, in order to allow the Amorim group’s companies to attain their full potential.
