Unidades

Dores de Campos

In 1989, Marluvas expanded its industrial park and built the unit where it is today. With strategic location in the highway of Dores de Campos, the headquarters is next to three important major cities: Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. They are 75 thousand square meters, of which 12 thousand are built. Currently, the unit employs approximately 960 direct employees and maintains a strong sales structure, with representatives in all regions of the country.

Capitão Enéas

Inaugurated on May 14, 2011, the factory has high production capacity, automation systems and state-of-the-art technology in an area of 12 thousand square meters. The unit, which represents a milestone for the company and for the city, contributes actively to the economic development and quality of life of the entire region. Thus, Marluvas continues to invest in the excellence of its products, in meeting the needs of its customers and in the well-being of its employees and the community.

Piedade do Rio Grande

Inaugurated on October 5, 2013, with the presence of the Governor Antônio Anastasia, of the Secretary of State for Economic Development Dorothea Werneck, mayors of the region and state and federal deputies, the Piedade do Rio Grande factory marks a time of expansion in the history of Marluvas, with the installation of six new units in the Campo das Vertentes region.

Social and
Environmental Responsibility

Our Business is Protection. Even from Nature. Since 2005, Marluvas, in partnership with the Regional Education Superintendency, has carried out, in the public and private schools of the municipalities of Dores de Campos and Capitão Enéas, the project EDUCAM (Environmental Education Marluvas), showing the importance of preservation actions, from themes such as water, recycling, fauna and flora.

Another program that brings positive impacts to communities is recycling. The waste generated in the Marluvas units are separated, reused and receive the correct destination. The work is done in conjunction with licensed companies, ensuring standardization and efficiency. The collaborators also do their part, discarding waste in the selective collectors. Prior to the implementation of the Environmental Project, Marluvas allocated 100% of its waste to industrial landfills. Today, this percentage has fallen to 85% and the other 15% is sent to companies that recycle and reuse this raw material. PU (polyurethane) waste is reused in the manufacture of traditional footwear, and the foam in the making of plush and cushions.

Marluvas has Sewage Treatment Stations – ETEs – in all plants. In them, waste from the toilets and lavatories is treated. The treatment has daily supervision and physical-chemical analysis of effectiveness to ensure adequate follow-up.
