Tapel Willamette Celebrates 20 Years in Business!

Tapel Willamette

Tapel Willamette, Willamette Valley Company’s South American division, recently celebrated 20 years in business- a major milestone! When it began operations in May 2000 the company had just 7 employees and was headquartered in a small warehouse near downtown Concepción, Chile. Today, Tapel Willamette is a leading supplier for the industrial, environmental, and wood products industries, providing innovative solutions and services all over the world from their current headquarters in Coronel, Chile.

The company has faced its share of challenges through the years – the subprime crisis, the earthquake in 2010, climate change, the current coronavirus pandemic, and a 2019 national social and political crisis in Chile that resulted in widespread strikes and road closures. Despite these challenges, the Tapel Willamette team stepped up and continued to supply high-quality solutions to their customers by following a simple credo:

“Nos asociamos a través del servicio, la innovación y la integridad”- We partner through service, innovation, and integrity.

It is this commitment to quality, service, and innovation that has made Tapel Willamette a success story.

Tapel Willamette is verified with Responsible Care, which reaffirms their commitment to the community, to the environment and to all those who are part of our business activities. The company demonstrated this commitment by participating in initiatives like this hydrological restoration program to reduce the environmental, social, and economic vulnerability generated by the mega-fires of the summer of 2017.

Meet Tapel Willamette, our South American Division

Nos asociamos a través del servicio, la innovación y la integridad. We partner through service, innovation and integrity.

62 years ago, Willamette Valley Company began as a small business that distributed mill supplies to the wood products industry. Today we have the ability to provide custom products and services all over the world thanks in part to our South American Division of WVCO, Tapel Willamette Inc. SA.

For the past 14 years, Tapel Willamette has produced and distributed the same high-quality solutions for wood, rail, and concrete industries as our North American divisions from their headquarters in Coronel, Chile.

The commitment to quality, service, and innovation has made Tapel Willamette a leading supplier in timber industry, providing products, services and technology solutions. Chemists and engineers continually seek ways to improve the application of our products to add value to their production.

Tapel Willamette recently achieved ISO 9001:2008 Certification Process, a set of requirements for a quality management system to ensure that systems and processes are in place so that product and services are delivered effectively and in a controlled and repeatable manner.

To achieve this goal, engineers implemented a world class ERP system that regulates production so that Tapel Willamette can deliver quality, service and value in all products offered to customers.  This quality management system is also used in various plants in the United States and Canada.
