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.

Prospering together

Vigent is a business group of Portuguese capital with operations spread across more than 15 countries

It results from the evolution of the vision established and put into practice by its predecessor Metalcon, SGPS, industrial holding company that added the shareholdings of a group of successful companies, some with more than 45 years of activity.

Our operations are the result of investments and partnerships in such distinct business areas as engineering and steel protection, the seafood industry and commerce, or the development and management of real estate assets.

In engineering and steel protection, besides having the largest installed national capacity in metal surface treatments, we are the largest national producer of public lighting systems and other infrastructure linked to sectors such as energy transport, telecommunications, road and railways.

We are also prominent leaders in the food sector of frozen seafood products 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 already manage and we are studying important investment projects.

Currently, the Group has more than 1,850 employees and registers, year after year, a significant growth in its activity. In 2019, the investees generated an aggregate turnover of more than 379,6 million euros. It is already possible to ensure that more than 50% of all group activity is generated in or for the external market.
