We assume a great sense of responsibility

When António Alves de Amorim built his first cork stopper factory in 1870, in Vila Nova de Gaia, he surely never imagined that this modest entrepreneurial gesture formed the embryo of what was to become, 150 years later, the world’s biggest cork transformation group. Successive generations of employees have always shared, defended and preserved the core values ​​of Corticeira Amorim, which have underpinned this extraordinary story, filled with challenges, obstacles and achievements.
