Weighing Equipment Manufacturing, Installation and Trading
The history of Balanças Marques is intertwined with the one of the founder, José Pimenta Marques, who has been developing the business since the late 1960’s, having gained expression with the beginning of manufacture, in Portugal, of the so-called Roman Scales, designed mainly to agriculture, specializing later in the manufacture of scales for Industry and Commerce.
Balanças Marques, ‘PME Excelência 2014’ company, has managed to grow in a sustained way, increasing its turnover for the 15 million euros, in 2013. The company’s ability to make it evolve and obtain results so positive, even in unfavourable economic conjuncture and of enormous instability, demonstrates how the business strategy followed has been the best, as well as the quality recognition of the name and products Marques.
This success comes as result from the continuous excellent performance of Balanças Marques in terms of exports, consequence of a very successful internationalization strategy, initiated in the mid-1990’s, and whose exports represent, today, more than 80% of the total billing. Balanças Marques has companies in Spain, France, Brazil and China, exporting to other several countries, such as Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Romania, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Kazakhstan and Angola.
