The company had already announced its intention to use these resources in to expand its logistics network and strategic M&As.
“We started to realize that our high, healthy and steady growth would not only happen in an organic way, as it has in the last few years. There are several companies in Brazil and abroad that already have their products tested and validated by the market and with incredible entrepreneurs. Why not get together to build something much bigger?” says Daniel Scandian, co-founder and CEO at MadeiraMadeira.
