Forest Santa Blanca

Forest Santa Blanca

The Holzapfel-García family began their forestation period at the end of the 70s in the Maule Region, Chile, specifically in the coastal city of Constitución. Setting up camps, they themselves planted thousands of radiata pines, hoping to see future lush forests, a situation which today is a reality. In the mid-80s, they embarked on the adventure of creating their own timber company motivated by their social calling of generating jobs for the community and their entrepreneurial spirit. This was the start of their first productive unit in that same city, giving way to a second one in 2004 in the Marchigue, part of the O'Higgins Region.

Thus, Santa Blanca was born from this dream; it is positioned as one of the most prestigious companies in the Chilean forestry sector today; it employs more than 500 direct workers; it is a company with ISO Quality and Environment Certifications since 2004; it manufactures dozens of different products and it also has modern drying and remanufacturing facilities which have allowed it to work with national and foreign companies of great prestige, establishing with them a lasting business relationship of true partners.
