Its activity has been mainly directed to the export market, reaching a level of expertise and equipment that enables to compete with the best in the world.
In 1982 we started using computerized production equipment, being one of the pioneers in this area. Followed in 1986 by the introduction of CAD/CAM systems.
Since 1994, we are certified NP EN ISO 9002. This certification has been updated in 2003 according to the norm NP EN ISO 9001.
In 1998 we made significant investments including in new equipment in order to maintain our production with the most highest technology.
In 1998 the administration of Molde Matos made significant changes in the company and became an anonymous society (s.a.).
Between 1982 and 1987, period of largest growth of Molde Matos S.A., the United States represented our biggest export market. Indeed until 1987 the North American market represented between 75% and 98% of our exports. From then, the value went down to 7% in 1995, being replaced by the European market, 65% in 1995 and progressively since 1990 by South America, 20% in 1995.
Decisive factor of the strategic reorientation of the company was the accession of Portugal to the European Economic Community, combined with an unfavorable development of the conditions of access to the North American market.
Currently, our most significant markets are Portugal, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Russia, as well as Latin America.
