???? – IAR Group is expanding and opening a branch office in Porto. Thanks to this step, the market coverage of our group company ZEUGMA is improved. In addition, the new office serves the entire IAR Group as a further base for its global range of engineering services.

“I am very pleased about the newly opened office in Porto. This will open up new market opportunities for us on a national and international level.” This is how Sebastien Perroud comments on the expansion to the north of Portugal. According to Perroud, two main objectives are being pursued.

The first is to improve the market coverage of Zeugma S.A., which is based in the greater Lisbon area. “The Porto branch will serve us to attract new customers for our industrial solutions in the north and throughout Portugal,” says José Carvalho. To this end, a sales and consulting staff will be recruited.

Secondly, the new office will serve as a further base for IAR Group’s global offering of engineering services in industrial automation and robotics. “We are in the process of recruiting engineers with automation know-how for the Porto office,” says Nuno Laginha. Their job will be to develop automation solutions for customers in Europe, Asia and North America.

Sébastien Perroud is convinced that demand for customized automation systems will continue to grow. The reasons for this include a shift of production back to Europe, combined with a shortage of qualified personnel. Perroud: “Many companies are being forced to increase production capacity while freeing up employees for work with higher added value – this is where we can make a decisive contribution with our proven expertise in automation.”
