Born into an historic cork family, Augusto Joaquim Alves Marques had contact with the world of cork from a very early age, growing up alongside it and spending much of his childhood involved with his parents’ cork business.

Augusto Marques is one of nine children, but despite a traditional upbringing he understood the need to keep up to date with the cork industry’s evolution. The current facilities are the result of a gradual development to create a blend of tradition and modernity.

Last but not least, through some visual memories, it is possible to perceive that the company’s spirit was maintained with the passing of the years, showing the lifelong character of the company values.
