Mocamar is a marble company, specializing in limestone, more precisely the Moca-cream.
It was founded in 1982, before the entry of Portugal to the European Community and in an era in which the free movement of goods and people by the European community was not yet possible as it is today.
We are a company which over the years has expanded globally, with markets as diverse as France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Sweden, Denmark, United States, Brazil, Qatar, UAE, Venezuela, South Korea, China, Japan, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, etc...
The company was born from the quarrying of blocks for the domestic market. Later in 1986 we opened the door for export, three countries in specific: France, Spain and Italy.
