Proteak Starts Up MDF Operation

In February Proteak announced the startup of its MDF plant in Huimanguillo, Tabasco, Mexico, under the brand Tecnotabla. “With state-of-the-art technology, this plant is the first of its kind in Mexico and will use certified wood from the company’s own 100% sustainable plantations,” the company states.

Panel production will increase gradually to reach the plant’s annual capacity of 280 thousand m3. MDF will be sold in the domestic and international markets.

“This plant represents the most important forestry industrial project in the country’s history and evidences that the forestry sector can be sustainable and profitable at the same time, to the benefit of many Mexican families,” comments Héctor Bonilla, founder of Proteak and President of the Board. “Mexico has everything to become an international forestry industrial powerhouse and we are proud to be the first ones to prove it.”

This project diversifies the economy of Tabasco and is the source of more than 1,500 direct and indirect jobs in the state’s rural areas.

Proteak is the largest forestry industrial company in Mexico and Central America. With more than 20,000 hectares of forestry plantations, it exports to more than 15 destinations in America, Europe and Asia.
