Flavio Maluf is an innovative leader that runs Eucatex in Brazil. Eucatex provides building materials to other companies that are made to build furniture as well as materials that are used in industry. As someone who believes in sustainability and being environmentally friendly, Flavio Maluf uses sources that are sustainable and don’t harm the environment. Most of the wood they supply is Eucalyptus which regrows very quickly. Eucatex also provides other materials such as tiles and paints.
Eucatex has been in business for more than 50 years. Their products are used not just in Brazilian products but those around the world. Everything they supply is environmentally sound earth friendly. This has been the case ever since the company was founded, which was a very unusual concept back in the 1950’s. There were barely any environmental rules at the time in Brazil but Euctex has always been a forward thinking company, a great tradition that continues under Flavio Maluf’s leadership as President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board. It was important to the founders of the company to make good profits and treat the environment with respect.
As a global company, Eucatex has offices in different cities in Brazil plus overseas offices in the United States and Germany. At Eucatex, Flavio Maluf also operates a forestry leasing program. They lease land from rural property owners who receive compensation for the value of the wood that is grown on their property. This arrangement helps out these rural property owners as they generate needed additional income.
Under Flavio Maluf’s leadership, Eucatex has won a large number of awards over the last several years. Among these is a 2011 award for Best Companies in Corporate Citizenship in Brazil, a win in 2012 for Psychologically Healthy Company Award, and another in 2012 for 150 Best Companies in People Management Practices.
