Summary: The main strategy is to create a completely new and innovative business area for Portugal, serving the construction and manufacturing industries. Given the increase in demand, this unit aims to replace imports made by potential Portuguese customers and penetrate export markets with higher added value, such as international markets.

The aim is to invest in the latest equipment technology that makes it possible to produce ACP with combined cores, which is still not widespread worldwide. The beneficiary’s objectives are:

  • To achieve a turnover of 8 million by 2025;
  • To be a reference player in the proximity and cultural affinity market;
  • Diversify markets by exporting more than 40 per cent of production;
  • To develop technological superiority in order to obtain a privileged position in the market;
