This new facility was equipped with innovations never before seen or utilized in cork production. In 2002 a second facility was constructed and further technologies introduced which combined have helped us achieve a 96% reduction in TCA values since.

Home of the individual cork screening technology NDTECH, which launched in 2016 and revolutionized the industry by becoming the first proven technological innovation which effectively eliminates cork stoppers which have a detectable level of TCA on a full production scale.
