The history of Maqmóveis begins with its founder, Roberto Costa (in front). From a skilled salesman, he became a visionary entrepreneur, who transformed his resale of typewriters and office furniture into the largest school furniture industry in Brazil, recognized for the quality of its products and the seriousness of its processes.
The second generation remains at the forefront of the business, which today is also a benchmark in contemporary corporate furniture; with his eldest son, Fábio Costa (right), as current president, and his youngest son, Roberto Costa Júnior (left), as CFO.
Founded by Mr. Roberto Costa, Maqmóveis started as a family business: a small retailer of typewriters and office furniture, located in the sunny city of Taquaritinga, in São Paulo state's inland. The company's name and first brand has been composed by mixing the name (in Portuguese) of its two key products: "maq" (from the Brazilian word for typewriters: “máquinas de escrever”) + "móveis" from office furniture. With only 4 employees, it soon started to sell school furniture as well.
After nine successful years of resale, Mr. Costa, the visionary founder of Maqmóveis, ventured into the production of school furniture. He opened his first factory with just 10 employees. He established a business that, after a decade, would place the company among the leaders in the national market.
Investing in design, new materials and high-tech machinery, Maqmóveis expanded its production capacity to meet the demand for school furniture. Its portfolio has then grown with new lines for offices, steel furniture and upholstered furniture. The company relied on 180 employees in 2001.
By developing new product lines to meet the requirements of collaborative and flexible spaces, the company renewed also its visual identity. The redesigned brand reflects this new positioning and consolidates the operations of Maq ID, Maqmóveis' innovation and design hub.
We currently have more than 400 employees in three industrial units, in Brazil and Paraguay.
