Portuguese Capital

We are a Portuguese company competing in a global market.
We compete with international companies with unequal prices, but with remarkable advantages in service quality.
Our share capital is entirely Portuguese.
Our activity and our investment revert in the Portuguese economy as a whole: taxes, social contributions, fees, patrimony.

We live in a global market where we must compete with multinational groups. The supply is increasingly standardized. However, HR are the biggest capital of companies. People matter, we always look for their professional and personal value.
We all have the responsibility to contribute for a better society. This awareness of organizational citizenship increases when our activity affects the future of people. We want to support companies and initiatives that promote this well-being.
