In the Wood division, we completed the process of divestment in assets based on the identification of our vocation for manufacturing. Therefore, we closed the panel unit in Botucatu (State of São Paulo) whose operation has been suspended since November 2018, and we negotiated forest assets in the central region of the State of São Paulo.

In the Deca division, we discontinued the sanitary ware unit in São Leopoldo (State of Rio Grande do Sul) and kept the production capacity after transferring the machinery to other plants of the division.

In the Ceramic Tiles Division, we entered into the acquisition agreement of Cecrisa Revestimentos Cerâmicos S.A., after which we started to hold the Portinari brand, and increased our capacity by 20 million sq. m. We concentrated the industrial activities of the division in the State of Santa Catarina, where the main plants of this segment were located.

With a view to new challenges, we have completed the feasibility analyses of engineering studies and negotiations with Lenzing AG to set up a joint venture, LD Celulose, in the dissolving wood pulp (DWP) segment. The works of this plant started in 2020 in the State of Minas Gerais.
