Our goal is to be a world leader in the industrialization of balsa wood, offering value-added products that differentiate us from our competition.
Our company started in the balsa wood industry back in 1958 selling model grade balsa to Germany . In 1973 Fadelma took over the operations and embarked on a new venture by offering a wider range of products such as air model sheets and balsa blocks. New business opportunities surfaced giving the company an opportunity to expand in other European markets.
In 1980 we started doing the core material, rigid and flexible end grain balsa panels, under the Flexokore trademark and distribution.
Nowadays, we have positioned ourselves as one of the leading balsa wood exporting company of finished core material.
Our production headquarter is located in Ecuador, country that supplies 95% of commercial balsa worldwide, in a city called Duran which is a convenient location given that is close to the biggest international port. We also have a second facility strategically located in Pueblo Viejo, Los Rios where most of the farmland has balsa and bananas.
Our current plant capacity is 18,000 m3 / year.
Our company is dedicated to the manufacture and distribution of balsa wood with a variety of products depending on our customer needs. We offer quality products with high standards of productivity along with qualified personnel allowing us to maximize profitability and company's growth.
