A indústria transformadora de cortiça em Santa Maria de Lamas
Carla Raquel Silva Matos, Marta Raquel Ferreira Pinto
AbstractIn the fifties and sixties, specially at the end of the latter, we assist to the affirmation of Santa Maria da Feira, namely of Santa Maria de Lamas, at the centre of the cork industry. Its geography was the result of several factors, such as availability of workers and market proximity. The cork industry in Santa Maria de Lamas had, through the industrial initiative, the overflowing labour force at low costs, the family ties and the mingling of places, an advantage over similar industries in Setiibal and Faro. The modus operandi of the cork industry allowed us to know a generation skill which, in the aforementioned decades, suffered a huge transformation in the productive process, with the «drilling machine* replacing the «garlopa».
