“The beginnings of the Catarino Group date back to 1949, the year in which a small family-run industrial plant was founded based on a sawmill and lime kiln operation.
The activity expanded and diversified gradually as a result of the investment made in other sectors.
The Group now comprises a number of small and medium enterprises operating in the Construction, Home Interior and Hotel Interior (FF&E and OS&E) sectors. The Catarino Group is a solid establishment which strives to ensure all its activities are conducted in accordance with strict ethical principles, thereby preserving the values handed down from the previous generations: Dedication, Humility, Ethics and Professionalism.
The Catarino Group began its internationalization process in 2006 in an attempt to establish itself as a key global player. The company Ramos Catarino SL was founded in the same year in Spain, based in Madrid, and expanded to France and the United Kingdom as of 2012”
