It all started in 1998 at the hands of brothers José Maria Carvalho and Fernando Carvalho, in Vila de Ponte, Guimarães. In that year, they decided to take the knowledge, know-how and experience acquired to create a company from scratch, which would come to be differentiated by the entrepreneurial spirit, by innovation, rigor and creativity. While José Maria was dedicated to the productive part, Fernando dealt with the financial side. And so JPZ Cartonagem was born.
Currently, we offer the most varied types of packaging, such as cardboards, MIX and recycled, recycled paper, corrugated and plywood, for example, and we work in the most diverse sectors: footwear, textiles, online sales, food, wine and metallurgical industry.
