November 3, 2015 – São Paio de Oleiros, Portugal —The Cork Supply Group (CSG) has purchased a facility in Portugal for the manufacture of technical corks including champagne corks, micro 1+1s, traditional 1+1s, and micro-agglos. This expansion into the production of technical corks fits seamlessly with the company’s philosophy of vertical integration from forest to bottle. Since CSG oversees the harvest and production of their natural cork every step of the way, all remaining cork materials from that production are of very high quality. Now CSG will be able to manufacture technical corks with 100% of these high quality remaining raw materials, making the new facility an integral part of the company’s commitment to high quality standards and environmental stewardship.

To oversee the development and production of this facility, the Cork Supply Group has hired a seasoned team comprised of an Executive Director, Antonio Bastos, and a Production Supervisor, Manuel Antonio Ferreira.  Antonio and Manuel have over 40 years of experience in the production of technical corks and will help transform the Cork Supply 4 (CSP4) facility into one of the world’s most advanced technical cork factories.
