“I am extremely honored and proud to receive this award that distinguishes the work of our entire team over the past 33 years. I accept this award, not on behalf of the company, but on behalf of all our staff and the fantastic team that all, without exception, have forged together. We are ready, willing, and able to engage in many more years dedicated to meeting the increasing requirements and demands of our customers. Our current major investment in a second manufacturing unit together and the entry of the third generation of the family in our company, are proof of this” – José Carlos Ribeiro, CEO.
