Advantages being a Tecnicelpa Member



TECNICELPA – Portuguese Association for the Technicians of Pulp and Paper Industries – a non-profitable professional association, was born under the sign of the old paper makers. It has adopted, as the symbol of its flag, the shield of the “Corporation of the Artists” from the old Holland, as well as the old water mark with the ox head, common in this specific art of the papermakers, symbolizing the strength of word and the creative art on a blue background which represents the non-dispensable water for the manufacture of pulp and paper.
This association was formed in 1980 and has presently aprox. 400 individual members (technicians) and 100 collective members (companies).

It has been awarded for its activity merit with a certificate of collective person of public utility, by dispatch of the Prime Minister on 26th July 2000.
