The information was provided by the coordinating director of Grupo Casais, Carlos Leite. Speaking to the newspaper Mercado, the engineer also mentioned that, in order to respond to the country's export and market needs, the company presents "a range of products associated with the carpentry area, from wardrobes, kitchens and coverings", with special emphasis on the doors.
"CarpinAngola has a range of products associated with the carpentry area, from wardrobes, kitchens and coverings. But there is one product in particular, which is the doors. It was a product that we developed during these years and we created a series of lines for each niche market: hospital, school, premium and low cost", he said.
The doors, whose line is called "Porta & Aro Low Cost", are produced entirely in the country and aim to avoid importing this product.
Cited by Mercado, the official explained that they are "low cost doors, but with quality, generally used in buildings with controlled costs", with this line being present in several projects in the centralities and in 12 provinces.
Among the company's intentions for the next year is the investment in the production of technical, acoustic and fire doors of the 'Archiwood XXI' line, at a time when it already has autonomy for the market in the manufacture of prefabricated doors, writes Mercado.
According to the same newspaper, one of the portions with the highest amount of sales concerns doors, with large-scale manufacturing for homes, schools and hospitals.
The official added that "with the seal of the Made in Angola program granted by the Ministry of Economy, CarpinAngola contributes in this way to the reduction of imports and the creation of wealth for the local economy".
In addition to doors, according to Mercado, CarpinAngola also has other initiatives, such as children's furniture with the 'Carpin4Kids' line - which is manufactured in the company's factories located in Viana (Luanda) and Braga (Portugal) and is for sale at Fioblu.
Carlos Leite, in statements to Mercado, also referred that "the conquest of this market has been exponential" and that they also bet "on local production, incorporating national raw materials, essentially wood, using only imports of wood derivatives and hardware, articles for which there is still no national production".
Created in 2010, the company, which is capable of producing 2000 pieces a month in a single shift and expects to end this year with more than 14,000 manufactured items, employs 156 people (36 are expatriates).
