Quality, Innovation and Pioneering

Since the first reform held in a padded in a simple basement, in 1974 until today, the Company records year after year, an exponential growth rate. The values inherited from the Cavaletti family and the incorrigible desire to always do more and well done, remain present in the Company, through the innovative spirit and entrepreneurship of its founders. Currently, Cavaletti is considered a reference in Latin America, in the seat market for professional and collaborative environments.

1974

It all started in a rented basement from the Albertoni family, less than 30m², on the top of Maurício Cardoso Avenue. The Company, then called Estofaria Erechim, started by hand, using simple tools, such as a sewing machine without a motor, a hammer, upholstery pliers and a stapler. The main activities were the refurbishment of sofas, armchairs and car seats, which were carried on the owners’ backs, as there was no other means of transport.

Mário and Gilmar, the founding brothers, were not of an appropriate age to be entrepreneurs, but from an early age they learned the importance of excellence in products, following the advice of their mother, Mrs. Libera: “”If it is to do something that will spoil soon, better not do it.”

1979

This year, another brother, Mr. Jair Cavaletti, then 19 years old, joined the business. At that time, Cavaletti already had 7 (seven) employees, but its structure was still rudimentary. All activities were carried out manually, from cutting to welding, sewing, painting and assembly. The difficulties became even greater when the Company started selling to other states as well. The industrial and, mainly, logistical challenges were great, but they inspired the increase in the structure, which was redistributed into three pavilions.

1986

This year, the area in the Industrial District was acquired, where a 2,100 m² pavilion was built. The factory has been modernized with new equipment and vehicles.

1994

Estofaria Erechim changed its name to Cavaletti Estofados para Escritório Ltda. Investments in technology made it possible to increase productivity and develop new products.

2008

Cavaletti Estofados para Escritório Ltda was already positioned among the largest office chair factories in Brazil. With the growth, a new brand positioning was necessary, where it was renamed: Cavaletti S / A Professional Seating and, the slogan that summarized the Company’s way of being: “Value in doing more” was implemented.
