We are a group of Portuguese origin with a strong vocation and international implementation. Our investments cover diverse areas such as engineering and steel protection, industry and commerce of products from the Sea, and the development and management of real estate assets.
Vigent is a Portuguese corporate group with operations spread over more than 15 countries.
It is the result of the evolution of the vision established and put into practice by its predecessor Metalcon, SGPS, industrial holding that added the shareholdings of a set of successful companies, some already with more than 45 years of activity.
Our operations are the result of investments and partnerships in business areas as distinct as steel engineering and protection, the industry and trade of Mar products or the development and management of real estate assets.
In Engineering and Protecting Steel, in addition to having the largest national installed capacity in metal surface treatments, we are the largest national producer of street lighting systems and other infrastructures related to sectors such as energy transportation, telecommunications, roads and railways.
We are also prominent leaders in the food sector of frozen seafood and one of the main national players in the processing and marketing of cod. Our portfolio of investments also extends to the real estate sector, where we have already managed and are studying important investment projects.
