It is a testament to the quality and strategic relevance of Portuguese technology in the development of infrastructures that are essential to everyone’s lives, both in Portugal and around the world.

The confidence placed in the electrical and electromechanical systems supplied by Efacec, Jayme da Costa and Sisint further reinforces the importance of these companies in the sustainable urban mobility landscape and, in particular, the high reliability of their solutions, as well as the technical expertise of their people.
