EdFor was founded in 1937 by Eduardo Ferreirinha, as the country's first completely built automobile in the country.

In the 1940s the company expanded and opened a second plant north of Lisbon to serve the growing commercial office supply while its Porto plant expanded to meet the massive educational demand for paper and school products.

In the 1950s the company expanded by opening a plant in Panjim to produce a variety of business and educational backpacks, briefcases and attaché cases.

In the 1960s the company expanded into the Federation and opened a subsidiary in Brazil and Argentina.

In 1992, Américo Barbosa died, and his daughter, Isabel Barbosa, became Chairman of the Board of Directors. Her main mission was to continue the work of her father, introducing into his project a priority objective of growth and dissemination of the Ambar brand throughout the world, promoting innovation and greater emotional involvement in all products.

In the 1990s the company expanded into the home market manufacturing a variety of Photo Albums, organisers, wrapping systems.

In 2004, Ambar changed its name to AMBAR – IDEAS NO PAPEL, SA, a move to accompany a well-defined change in its strategy, based on three key aspects: creativity, focus on the consumer, internationalization.

Today AMBAR – IDEAS NO PAPEL, SA, products are found all over the world and is ranked as one of the top 10 office and educational supply companies in the world.
