Not just any start-up

The Tafisa® story began in 1992, with the financial investment of a Spanish company called Tableros de Fibras S.A.. Tafisa® has invested $400 million since 1992, making it the largest, most modern particleboard production facility in North America. 

Today, the plant measures 65,000 square meters (700,000 sq. ft.), the equivalent of approximately 11 football fields.
