Ficosa, top-tier global provider devoted to the research, development, manufacturing and marketing of high-technology vision, safety, connectivity and efficiency systems for the automotive and mobility sectors, has boosted its presence in Portugal with a new 7,800 m2 facility. This new space, in which the company has invested €5 million (approximately $5.7 million US), is an expansion of Ficocables, the Ficosa plant in the city of Maia (Oporto).

These new facilities address Ficosa’s need to strengthen its capacities in Portugal by re-organizing its facilities to boost competitiveness, efficiency and productivity, as well as providing a better workplace for all of its employees.

In this regard, the new building, which is fully built and expected to go into use this month, features newly created spaces equipped with the latest-generation technology meeting the very highest standards of energy efficiency. These include technical offices, engineering rooms and laboratories, with an updated image that is fresher and more modern, Ficosa says. Likewise, it significantly increases the social spaces available to employees, including a canteen with food services, dining halls, first-aid area, new parking and outdoor green spaces.

“The decision to strengthen the Ficocables plant by constructing a new building is based not only on our desire to boost its efficiency and production capacity to better meet the needs of the European market, but also to better serve our customers and offer a better future for everyone who is part of our team, in modern and more competitive facilities,” said Costa Pereira, Ficosa Country Manager in Portugal.
