After a time period characterized by a strong international growth leading to a business volume over 60% of the company’s global turnover, Efacec is at the verge of a new cycle, one that will be marked by the consolidation of its structure and procedures. The company is focusing on the improvement of its productivity, both in terms of technology and manufacturing, but also in what relates to its corporate areas, by improving competitiveness, and margins, as well as growing its profits and, as a result, the value it creates.
Efacec is present on a variety of technological and geographical fronts that will enable us to face the current difficult state of the worldwide economy. With business units leading the way towards achieving more efficient and more sophisticated products, systems and solutions and market units covering the ground close to our outstanding and growing base of customers, Efacec is proud of its unique ability to adapt to the specific needs of every and each of its customers.
Accordingly, while being exposed to high-growth markets and, therefore, major global opportunities, we have been able to meet the development challenges of the new opportunities constantly presented by our markets, as well as timely provide new solutions and new products for new requirements, capable of creating new partnerships, new customers, new export opportunities and new income.
Regardless of that, the current economic situation demands great commitment, determination and professionalism from all agents, namely companies and their employees. As such, Efacec will concentrate its efforts not only on maintaining a steady growth, but also on increasing the value of its operations, mainly focusing on profit, margins, operating efficiency and increased productivity.
We will seek to accomplish this with great efficiency and by using the best management practices, with a strong commitment towards technology and innovation as levers for growth and value creation. We shall do so by acknowledging and recognizing all our employees and by promoting a culture of merit that, by including everyone in the company’s development and growth plans, seeks to simultaneously provide personal and professional challenges in the activities developed both in Portugal and abroad.
We shall achieve this with the same enthusiasm ever present, while following high standards of social responsibility and of great respect for all our stakeholders — particularly our customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders —, enhancing the sustainable development of our businesses and creating economic and social value.
