Montes del Plata
We are an industrial-forestry company dedicated to the production of eucalyptus cellulose pulp.
We produce pulp with the latest equipment and technological techniques at an industrial complex located near the town of Conchillas in the department of Colonia. At these facilities, we process wood that comes from forest plantations located throughout fourteen of the country's departments.
Montes del Plata was founded in Uruguay in 2009 by two global leaders in the forestry sector: Arauco (Chile) and Stora Enso (Sweden - Finland). Both companies share a long-term outlook in Uruguay and a common vision of a socially committed and environmentally-friendly business.
We express our commitments to sustainability through work and employment conditions, environmental protection and participative dialogue with local communities.
