GRANORTE is a Portuguese family company, founded in 1972, with the aim of creating products in cork, using the remains from the wine cork stoppers manufacturing industry.

Historically, the Figueiredo da Rocha family owned five factories, being one of the most important producers of natural cork stoppers. Understanding the importance of creating value from the cork leftovers of their factories, the family founded GRANORTE and the horizons
opened up to a new business.

Granorte joins innovation and tradition as its corporate strength, successfully combining modern production know-how with a culture rooted in history. And it believes in the wisdom of a natural, time-honoured but renewed material.

Thanks to the continuous innovation, forward-looking and passionate research, the company developed into an expanding producer of technical, creative and sustainable solutions using cork, being recognized over the years by important collaborations and international awards such as iF, Iconic Awards, Green Good Design and German Design Award.

Today, GRANORTE is a leading manufacturer of environmentally responsible products dedicated to building and interior design. One tradition was kept unchanged however: the quiet revolutionary way of promote ongoing, consistent, breakthrough creativity. This innovation culture and teamwork encouraging have been the basis of our success.
