FINSA was a pioneer in the manufacture of particleboard and MDF on the Iberian Peninsula. It began its industrial activity in 1931, at a sawmill in Portanxil (Ames). A few years later, in 1937, Manuel García Cambón gave legal form to the project, which, in 1946, would be named FINANCIAL MADERERA S.A.
Ever since their inception, they have always been aware of the responsibility they take on by using wood as the base element to manufacture and develop their solutions. They learn from it and they incorporate many of its virtues into their organisation: its versatility and strength as well as its emotional closeness to people, and the comfort and warmth it brings to society. Their wide product range follows the same philosophy, and is currently present in the daily lives of human beings, forming part of the most cherished environments.
Through their Environmental Policy,Finsa are actively committed to the protection of the environment. Finsa want their manufacturing processes to have the least environmental impact possible. In this sense, Finsa are one of the cleanest companies: generating more energy than they waste for the processing of our products. All Finsa’s manufacturing processes are optimised so that they achieve maximum energy saving by cogeneration (exploitation of the heat and energy produced by the factory) and minimum waste production.
Besides, the waste materials generated by their activity as well as recycled materials from other industries are used to create energy through their biomass factories.
