Terex Ecotec—industry leader in the design and manufacture of wood processing, biomass and recycling equipment—is pleased to announce the appointment of Cimertex - Sociedade de Máquinas e Equipamentos SA for Portugal.
Founded in Porto in 1964, Cimertex is now a leading distributor of industrial equipment, representing several world-renowned brands across Portugal, Italy and Angola. Álvaro Bastos, Jr. Executive Director, Cimertex said, “Cimertex is proud to expand our product offering to the Portugese environmental market with the addition of world-class Terex Ecotec products. The recycling market in Portugal is small, with only 21% of total waste generated in Portugal currently being recycled. Being in the Eurpoean Union, where recycling levels are much higher—Portugal has a strong outlook for growth in this sector, with targets to achieve 51% recycling by 2024. We look forward to working with Terex Ecotec to build our expertise in this area and become a major player in the recycling industry here.”
Mark McGlinn, Territory Sales Manager, Terex Ecotec said, “I am delighted to have secured Cimertex as a Terex Ecotec distributor as they come with over 50 years of experience in the sales and maintenance of tools and machinery. Cimertex is well-respected in the waste industry, having had great success with Fuchs and Komatsu, along with a previous good record with Terex crushing and screening equipment, so it is a good match to utilise their expertise in product, parts and service to expand our reach across Portugal and tap into the growing recycling sector there.”
