CASD - Interirores

CAS Interiores is a furniture company (CAE-Rev3: 31091) that was founded in 1985, by Mr. Joaquim Leal de Sousa Castro, in Sobrosa, Paredes. Always in the same industrial establishment and with the same commercial name, the current company (Joaquim Leal de Sousa Castro – Ind. Mob., Lda) was formed in 2006, which was initially in the name of Joaquim Leal de Sousa Castro. It currently has around 28 employees and 33 years of experience, throughout which it has followed the evolution of the sector seeking to develop in a sustainable manner.

By investing in highly qualified and responsible professionals, the company is guided by quality work, recognized at several fairs in the Capital of Furniture – Paços de Ferreira and others in the sector, having been distinguished with awards for best stand and best furniture.

CAS Interiores sees itself as a company where the rigor and quality presented are difficult to match, combined with design that combines comfort, well-being and utility, as well as resistance and functionality of the furniture, in order to allow the quick access to all the utensils placed in them. These are CAS Interiores’ concerns when creating new collections.
