About Manuchar Chile
After many years serving the local market from its headquarters in Belgium, Manuchar decides to operate directly in the Chilean market, opening an office in Santiago de Chile in January 2004, initially focused on the metals business. In 2007, with the arrival of its first import of paraffin paste, Manuchar Chile began its local distribution operations in rented warehouses in the Pudahuel area. Today, with new horizons, products and projects, we are focused on the logistics and distribution area of a wide variety of products with high quality standards, total commitment to our customers, and an unconditional team of people around the world willing to solve problems and respond to all your needs.
Our values clarify what Manuchar really stands for. They form the “identity” or the DNA of our company. We believe that they are important for our long-term success. This means that our values should influence or even drive everything we do as a company, as a Manuchar team or as a team member. They are defined as the attitudes and behaviors that we “value” most in our company.
