Quality and environment are important items in our process, enhanced by the ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 certifications.
The human factor is our major asset in the company and our 500 collaborators are provided transport, meals, medical and dental service and several other benefits.
We are proud of all these aspects that make Madem a dynamic innovative team constantly growing.
MADEM S/A has four industrial units in Brazil, operating basically with the same raw material: wood from renewable forests; one unit in Bahrain, and one in Calaf / Barcelona, in Spain.
In 2005, Madem started in Spain a distribution operation with its first company abroad called "Euromadem". Becoming aware of Europe's potential regarding the demand for quality reels, it decided to open its first production unit in the world. It manufactures 400,000 wooden reels a year, supplying Spain, Portugal and France, exporting part of its production.
As pinus wood is an important raw material for the production of our reels, Madem strategically saws 80% of its wood consumption to better adapt to the market costs since the price of wood worldwide varies a lot. All the production is for our own consumption. Madem S/A keeps a monthly production of 10,000m³, with modern production lines and 25 drying kilns.
The company has forest areas with renewable wood, where there is a continuous cycle of felling and renewal of the forest providing an uninterrupted supply of the raw material.
