About the sponsor: Finsa was a pioneer in the manufacture of particleboard and MDF on the Iberian Peninsula. It began its industrial activity in 1931, at a sawmill in Portanxil (Ames). Ever since our inception, we have always been aware of the responsibility we take on by using wood as the base element to manufacture and develop our solutions. We learn from it and we incorporate many of its virtues into our organisation: its versatility and strength as well as its emotional closeness to people, and the comfort and warmth it brings to society. Our wide product range follows the same philosophy, and is currently present in the daily lives of human beings, forming part of the most cherished environments.
