To achieve the established levels of efficiency and productivity, the company emphasizes the application of modern management methods to make the Group more efficient and transparent to the outside world. Some of the policies we use:


  • accounts reporting of all group companies in conformity to international standards of financial rigor.
  • achievement of each group's companies goals with transparency and responsibility.
  • valorisation of the human capital and creating of a professional environment conducive to self-motivation.
  • responsibility towards the environment and for its preservation.
