Eucatex, the multi-billion dollar company, started back in 1950, its mother company was the Americana Sawmill Americana, which was then producing and distributing wood to the local market. The Brazilian building industry was in dire need of affordable, quality ceiling tiles; Eucatex filled this market gap by providing just that. Following its inception in the 50s, Eucatex became the first company in the building industry to use eucalyptus as raw material in the large-scale production of ceiling tiles. Initially, the ceiling tiles were produced to meet the demand of the local market but the product quality was so high that it saw the company exporting it all over Europe. Eucatex is among the top industries in Brazil producing and supplying building materials both locally and internationally.
Eucatex also recycles used hard boards, an environmentally friendly move. In 2007, the company produced 10.8 million liters of paint. Eucatex’s paint accounted for 15 percent of the paint sales in the country; there was an increment in the sale by 3 percent. This company is ranked the seventh largest paint producer in Brazil as a country, commanding a three percent market share. Eucatex has a short term goal of increasing its market share by 2 percent; this goal is purely realistic based on the good leadership that the company has, not forgetting the dedicated 2,200employees on its payroll. The company prides itself with the production of high-quality products that their customers prefer over other products from different companies.
This company has visionary executives who ensure that the decisions made are beneficial to the organization both now and in the future. Eucatex Company is currently under the leadership of Flávio Maluf; he has been with the company since 1987 and worked through various positions and would later be named the President and Chief Executive Officer of the company in the year 1997. Mr. Flávio Maluf has been very instrumental in the company’s leadership and has pushed the company to greater heights since he was named the president. Mr. Flávio Maluf understands the global and the Brazilian market, and this has propelled the company a couple of steps further putting it on the international map. He has effectively managed the eucalyptus plantation since his appointment as the president of the organization. This eucalyptus plantation is very important in the day to day running of the organization since it is the chief source of raw materials for the company.

FreedomPop has only been around for about three years now, but it has become one of the fastest growing services in wireless. All of this makes for a rather interesting conflict against the larger service providers. Some of the larger companies have offered to buy out FreedomPop, but the company continues to turn these larger companies down, all while expanding at the same time. Now, FreedomPop does not own any of its actual infrastructure or cell towers. It buys data at wholesale prices from service provider Sprint and then turns around to give customers free data and mobile phone services. This free service is what makes the company so desirable and beneficial. It is the content the company provides that continues to make it this growing service provider in the mobile phone and tablet industry.
The company currently offers service plans that includes 300 MB of data, 300 text messages and 300 anytime minutes for free. Additional service comes at discounted, inexpensive prices that are far beyond what most common service providers are able to offer. Beyond this, the company is also expanding out to the UK in order to provide a similar service. While this is cut down to 200 words, 200 text messages and 200 MB of data, it still provides an excellent cost saving opportunity for anyone who lives in the UK. Furthermore, FreedomPop provides free international calling to over 60 different countries and it is working on a traveling SIM card that does not have any sort of roaming for several dozen nations. All of this is going to make FreedomPop an excellent service provider for someone who enjoys to travel but is looking for a way to save money calling back home and messaging those across the world without having to pay for all of the extensive bills that are associated with it.
With all of these different services, FreedomPop wants to make sure customers are able to receive exactly the kind of beneficial assistance they need. It doesn’t matter what someone is looking to purchase or what they might want in terms of minutes or data, FreedomPop is able to help the customers either receive their service plan for free, or they help the individuals save hundreds of dollars every year with a discounted rate. Best of all, there are no plans or contracts, so a person can opt out of it at any time.
