History

Compañía Chilena de Fósforos S.A., was established in 1913, being the main producer and marketer of security matches in the country.

At present, we have a production capacity of more than 48,000 million matches per year, thanks to the modern plant we inaugurated in 2007, located in the VII Region in the middle of our own poplar plantations.

Throughout these 106 years in the Chilean market, we have incorporated various business areas to meet other needs of our customers. So today, the Compañía Chilena de Fósforos S.A. and its subsidiaries export splints (impregnated and polished sticks for making matches), matchsticks, ice cream sticks, wooden spatulas for mixing paint, moldings, latticework doors and fruit to more than 22 countries.
