It is 1968, Bento takes a bus trip to Rio. Next to him, seats a man that tells him the basics of the wood trade, and asks him to manufature a first batch and call him to make the sale. Well, Bento did do all he said, but before he could call such man, he got an offer from a buyer that was going round at the time. That man, never bought from Bento, but he did plant a seed on what became to be a passion for wood products.
Originally called Madescan, then Madeireira Scandian, then Scandian Madeiras. The name Scandian was a brand that signified quality and responsibility throughout it’s existence.
