Our history

  1. Company founded in Ordem, Marinha Grande

    Company founded in Ordem, Marinha Grande

    Founded in 1968 by brothers Joaquim and Arnaldo Matos in Marinha Grande, a land of deep-set industry and home to the company's headquarters to this day, it moved to its current manufacturing facilities in Moita, still in the Municipality of Marinha Grande, in 1979.
  2. Moved to current facilities in Moita, Marinha Grande

    Moved to current facilities in Moita, Marinha Grande

  3. Began using computerised production systems

    In 1982, the company pioneered the transition to computerised production systems, soon followed by the integrated introduction of CAD and CAM systems in 1986.

  4. CAD / CAM systems Introduced

    The company's measuring and testing equipment is connected to the CAD and CAM system and is therefore able to meet all production process needs.

  5. Worldwide Presence

    Worldwide Presence

    Between 1982 and 1987, the U.S. market played a vital role in the most significant growth period Molde Matos, S. A. had seen up to then. In fact, until 1987, the North American market accounted for between 75% and 98% of the total value of the company's exports. However, this would change from then on, registering at 7% in 1995, it being largely replaced by the European market (65% in 1995), and progressively by the South American market since 1990 (20% in 1995).

  6. Plastic Injection Plant Founded

  7. NP EN ISO 9002 Certification

    The company's Quality Management System was certified as meeting standard NP EN ISO 9002 in 1994, it then being replaced by standard NP EN ISO 9001 in 2003.

  8. Restructuring of the company

    In 1995, the company's exports were largely geared toward the European market (65% in 1995), and then progressively the South American market since 1990 (20% in 1995).

    This strategic restructuring was primarily made possible by Portugal joining the European Economic Community, in addition to an unfavourable development in the access available to the North American market.

    The markets with which MoldeMatos, S. A. works most closely are Portugal, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia, and Latin America.

  9. Public Limited Company (S.A.)

    In 1998, the company made significant investments into equipment with a view to staying on the cutting edge of technology.

    In the same year, it went from a private to a public limited company.

  10. New Management

    In December 2001, founding partner Mr Arnaldo Matos left his position as manager of Molde Matos, S. A., a position that was subsequently taken over by the following team: Mr Joaquim Matos, Ms Isabel Matos, Ms Paula Matos and Mr Miguel Matos.
