Sindmóveis, the Furniture Industry Association of Bento Gonçalves, is the organization that represents 300 companies in the main furniture cluster in Brazil in terms of parts produced and number of companies (IEMI), and comprises the cities of Bento Gonçalves, Monte Belo do Sul, Pinto Bandeira and Santa Tereza.

The association was founded in 1977 to formally represent the furniture companies located in the city of Bento Gonçalves and its surrounding region.
