Resumo: In the competitive environment where companies operate nowadays, there is a need to adopt intemationalization strategies to enable consolidation in diversified markets. The internationalization process is pait of a relevant strategy for companies, has several implications and is influenced by many specific issues, namely companies behavior, its culture and stmcture, as well as its leadership. However, it is on the organization structure that we find one ofthe most relevant features: the dimension (size) of companies. With a particular focus in the influence of a company size in its capacity for intemationalization, as well as the interest shown by companies to increase their size, the empirical work carried out during this research had a triangular methodology base, given that we developed and applied qualitative (interviews) and quantitative (questionnaires) nature instruments for data collection and analysis. We have interviewed furniture manufacturing industry managers in order to have a better understanding of this reality. Results allowed us to conclude that companies value increase in size; nevertheless, for cultural reasons that are inherent to the industry, they are still resistant to such an increase. For increasing their size, companies value several instruments, such as: strategic alliances/corporate cooperation; fusions and acquisitions; and risk capital interventions.
