About Us

We are a Portuguese company with a strong exporter profile
and international presence in over 65 countries.
A brand with almost 70 years, made by great people.
Our foundation goes back to 1905, with de beginning of
a new company “A Moderna” Sociedade de Serração Mecânica.

In 1921 “A Moderna” gives rise to the Electro-Moderna, Lda.
A company with operations in the electric field
(motors, generators, transformers and electric accessories).
Electro-Moderna had, at that time, the necessary skills to
support the major future development of what would be the “EFACEC”.

On August 12, 1948 EFME – Empresa Fabril de Máquinas Eléctricas, SARL
was founded. That was the starting point of
Efacec project and the birth of Efacec brand.

The company equity capital was, at that time, shared by
Electro – Moderna (20 %), ACEC – Ateliers de Constructions Électriques de Charleroi (20%),
CUF – Companhia União Fabril (45 %).
The remaining 15 % were distributed by other shareholders.
After several equity capital changes, namely due to the exit of
CUF, ACEC became majority shareholder.

As a consequence the name EFACEC – Empresa Fabril de Máquinas Eléctricas, SARL,
was born in 1962, and a period of remarkable growth started on that same year.

At the end of the sixties Efacec became one of the first
Portuguese companies listed on the Lisbon Stock Exchange.

About 25 years later, in the context of integration in the EEC
and the sale, by ACEC, of their 65% stake of Efacec share capital,
a strong growth period begun, namely on international markets,
simultaneously to an important technological development in various fields.

In the twenty-first century, responding to worldwide economic
and financial crisis, Efacec started a restructuring process,
namely on international markets structures as well as
a simplification of the company portfolio. Alongside the company sold
some assets and business considered non-nuclear.
At that time Efacec was renamed to Efacec Power Solutions, SA. (EPS)
a company with a new business perimeter, reinforcing its core businesses.

The constitution of EPS on 2014 was part of Efacec Capital, SGPS, S.A.
restructuring process started at the end of 2013, aiming to align
the corporate structure of Efacec Group with the market segments and
target geographies addressed.

In October 2015 Winterfell Industries acquired
the majority stake of Efacec Power Solutions. Efacec previous shareholders
José de Mello Group and Textil Manuel Gonçalves, became minority shareholders
and new Corporate Bodies were elected.
