“Enthusiasm, commitment, teamwork and close collaboration with our clients"
Decotec has been present in the decorative paper market since 1997 and year after year, we have gathered experience. We have grown with enthusiasm, commitment, teamwork and close collaboration with our customers. Together, we define, design and create solutions suited to our customers’ needs, so the final product allows them to develop beautiful environments.
Decotec was born in 1997 as a result of the business vision of professionals of the furniture industry. The main goal was the manufacture of printed paper for the furniture, flooring and the sector of decoration with melamine boards. In 2001, Finsa (Financiera Maderera S.A.) acquired the management of the company and converted Decotec into a benchmark in design and trends, thanks to sustainable growth, continuous improvement and an efficient production model.
In 2017, the strategic alliance with the Japanese group Toppan was consolidated. Toppan, a world leader in global printing became then the largest shareholder of Decotec. This international collaboration marks the new strategic lines of growth in international markets and commitment to design. Since then, Decotec has become Toppan's first European plant in the decorative paper sector.
Social commitment. Welfare, growth and personal development of our employees are our priorities. Therefore we respect the rights of all the people that form the Decotec team. We believe in a fair internal regulation, linked to active protocols for the prevention of occupational risks that guarantee employees physical integrity. We promote equal opportunities and gender and we do it by working closely with our entire team.
Respect for the environment. Nature is our main source of inspiration. Our commitment to sustainability is born from the admiration and affection for nature. This respect for the environment is reflected in the Environmental Policy of the Company, a document that guide us in everything we do, just to ensure that our impact on the environment is reduced the minimum. Teamwork. Collaboration and mutual support define the way we work. We apply continuous improvement processes that boost productivity with a positive and exciting attitude, with the commitment to make our work better every day. Customer service. We support our clients at all times. We are always aware of their needs, suggesting changes and improvements and advising them on new trends in market design.
Continuousimprovementas a tool toadvance.
Trends are constantly evolving and we want our clients to be aware of the latest developments . Our marketing team takes the pulse of the market by constantly attending the most relevant fairs, workshops and design events. This constant work allows us to perceive and anticipate market trends, both locally and internationally. We thus discover the materials that will inspire our catalog and define our designs.
Technology opens a new universe of opportunities in the printing sector. That is why our design team is in charge of digitizing the original materials. After scanning, the most appropriate lighting settings are applied to achieve the maximum design detail. From that moment, the digital image is worked on and at the end of the process, it will be materialized in our products.
The Color Lab is the test bed of Decotec. This is the place where color ranges are developed and samples for our customers are produced.. Our techniques cover conventional printing, gravure printing - a step prior to production - and digital printing, which speeds up and facilitates deadlines with a more immediate response.
We engrave incisions with industrial diamond on copper filmed cylinders. Subsequently, cylinders are hardened with chromium by an electroplating process. We use rotogravure machines with 4 bodies/colors.
Raw materials, together with our experience and the continuous monitoring of the production process result in a quality industrial product that meets the most demanding standards in the market. Our three production lines are equipped with technologies that facilitate the printing process in a constant and reliable way. Moreover, quality is also guaranteed with the Japanese method KAIZEN.
The Decotec showroom is the exhibition space of our collections, sales and promotion network. This environment serves as a meeting point for our clients, designers and manufacturers, with whom we share our ideas about design, materials and colors.

People are the center of everything, because it is the people who achieve our goals and it is the people who create a team. Working together we can go further than each one separately. The Decotec team is a perfect combination of experience, technical knowledge and commitment to our objectives, in an efficient and productive manner. We are a group of people with a common goal: the satisfaction of our customers, the main aim to which we dedicate all our efforts and hopes.
