Proteak announces the operations’ startup of its MDF plant in Huimanguillo, Tabasco, under the brand Tecnotabla, Mexico. With state-of-the-art technology, this plant is the first of its kind in Mexico and will use certified wood from the company’s own 100% sustainable plantations. Panel production will increase gradually to reach the plant’s annual capacity of 280,000 cubic metres.
Given that Proteak complies with the highest international quality standards, MDF will not only be sold in the domestic market, but in the international one, as well.
“This plant represents the most important forestry-industrial project in the country’s history and evidences that the forestry sector can be sustainable and profitable at the same time, to the benefit of many Mexican families,” declared Héctor Bonilla, Founder of Proteak and President of the Board.
This project diversifies the economy of Tabasco and is the source of over 1,500 direct and indirect jobs in the state’s rural areas.
Proteak is the largest forestry-industrial company in Mexico and Central America.
