A family owned company founded in Portugal in 1972, Granorte was established to specifically develop products from cork waste that is the by-product of the wine bottling industry.

Commitment to new product development and achieving the highest quality standards has allowed Granorte to develop a complete range of cork products from granulated to agglomerated cork. The Granorte cork range currently includes sheet, underlay for insulation, wall and floor tiles, and floating floors.

Granorte has added Microban antimicrobial product protection to its floating floor line and cork underlay flooring range to prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause product deterioration. Built in at the point of production, Microban technology delivers continuous antimicrobial protection that will last for the expected lifetime of the flooring product.
