Who Are We

Our Purpose is to Offer Solutions to Live Better

Dexco is a Brazilian company, publicly listed since 1951, with stocks traded in the stock exchange (B3) under the DXCO3 ticker.

We are Brazil’s leading industrialized wood panel manufacturer, the Southern Hemisphere’s leading sanitary ware maker, and one of the country’s ceramic tiles top sellers.

Since 2009, the company has been listed in B3’s Novo Mercado (New Market), a testament to its high corporate governance standards. Additionally, since 2008, it has been listed in the ISE (Corporate Sustainability Index) portfolio, which goes to show our commitment to environmental and social responsibility matters.




Dexco is born out of a 70-year history

In 2021, after seven decades operating in the market, we reached a major milestone that allowed us to live a new phase: change. We became a more modern company and, fittingly, embarked on a new digital journey that makes Dexco a 21st century company: more modern and even closer to consumers.

The change consolidated our profile as a company focused on end-users and their journey. The new brand’s promise – Live Spaces – cements our purpose to offer Solutions to Live Better and translates our newly-shifted focus on people.

This move marked the beginning of a new investment cycle that gives us strength to continue fulfilling our purpose. We continually combine form and function.

At the center of what we do is the belief that a flawless design makes the relationship between people and any kind of space more balanced and pleasant, whether it is a work, leisure, or relaxation space, or the environment at large. Design that dazzles, simplifies, represents, preserves, and transforms these spaces. That is why we believe spaces are there to be lived.

To that end, through our brands – Deca, Portinari, Hydra, Duratex, Castelatto, Ceusa, Durafloor – we offer solutions that combine looks and function, providing comfort and wellness. We play an important role in society and, from the outset, environmental, social, and governance matters have guided our discussions about the future of the company.

Constantly seeking to attract new, money-making businesses that resonate with the company’s purpose remains a strong guideline for this new phase. Thus, we have become a new company: more digital, open, dynamic, and integrated.

Competitive Advantages

Dexco’s competitive advantages are rooted in its essence and stretch beyond the balance sheet. Such attributes are essential for the creation of value, for sustaining operations in the long term and for differentiating the Company in an ever-competitive market


Throughout its history, the Company consolidated the Duratex, Durafloor, Deca, Hydra, Ceusa, Portinari and Castelatto brands, among others registered abroad, which are now synonymous with quality and reliability.


Dexco continuously invests in research, and in the development of products and solutions that add to the Company’s competitiveness. Highly capable employees are in tune with new trends, and are able to create products that are in sync with the consumer’s interests.


The quality of Dexco’s products is a national reference and assures the Company a privileged position. Trained sales teams, technical assistance available throughout the country and Customer Service ensure the credibility of the brands and transmit a sense of trust to customers.


Technology is one of the Company’s main allies in the search for sustainable growth. The continuous technological advancement of Dexco’s processes allow for both greater productivity and for the reduction of environmental impacts. In order to offer differentiated and competitive products, Dexco counts with a modern industrial structure, with last-generation machinery and equipment, robotic processes and constant maintenance, along with advanced hardware and software systems.


The preservation of natural resources is an integral component of the Company’s strategic plan. Dexco invests in the reutilization of materials, as well as in efficient and clean processes, programs and equipment aimed at reducing the consumption of water and electric energy. Resources are also dedicated towards the enhancement of seedlings and of procedures that allow for plantations to hold one of the highest productivity levels in the world.

Besides these initiatives, all the wood used in the production of panels and hardboards derives from reforestation areas, most of which are certified. The same holds true for ceramic and metal sanitary ware, which allow for water consumption management.

Cost Management

Among the initiatives to reduce operational costs are the reutilization of raw materials and the use of biomass in heating the boilers. The production scale, the integrated wood supply systems, (where forests are located next to mills) and verticalized production units are also essential to guaranteeing high productivity at low costs.


Among Dexco’s main assets are its employees, which possess differentiated knowledge in their areas of expertise. The attraction, training and retention of talent is the focus of the Company’s Human Resources department, which stimulates and contributes towards a healthy work environment.
