Amorim reinforces its world distribution network

2015-01-07


The world’s leading cork manufacturer for spirits drinks, Amorim TopSeries Unit, has been expanding its global reach, by sealing new distribution agreements that further reinforce its local presence.

Examples of that are the distribution agreements inked with Gaasch Packaging for the Scottish market, in Russia with Moscow firm Rusvinpack, in Mexico with Acusticos & Sellantes, in Brazil with Four Trees Inteligência & Valor and in Poland with ENOTECH.

Amorim also relies on its in-house production and own distribution network all around the globe. In France, Amorim TopSeries Unit has its own local finishing and distribution facility, Amorim Cognac Unit, which also finalises TS corks. In Italy - Amorim Cork Italia and in the US, Amorim Cork America.
Amorim clocked up record performances over the last four years, in spite of the world economic situation.
Corticeira Amorim is responsible for 35% of the world’s entire cork manufacturing, recording €543 million revenues from 22,000 customers in 2013.
Based in Portugal, the biggest cork-producing country in the world, Amorim exports 95% of its annual production to more than 100 countries.
Building on its 144-year track record of high quality production, the group currently invests €6 million per year in R&D investment, with 21 patents submitted in the past five years.

Cutting edge technology has enabled Amorim to maximize the quality of its cork stoppers and augment cork ability to unprecedented levels.
Recent examples include the WhiteTop cork stopper especially designed for white spirits, the Helix cork stopper, released in June and an innovative process for testing corks for the trichloroanisole (TCA) compounds that cause “corked” wine.
36 of the group’s production units have FSC certification and in order to guarantee its rigorous production standards it relies on 3,350 associates.
The Amorim Group is a multinational player, with operations in every continent, encompassing 84 companies (64 located outside Portugal) and 297 key distribution players.
