COMET was founded in 1993 by its present manager, Sr. Luís Vasconcelos, together with another partner. In its initial period, the core business was essentially the construction of industrial buildings.
In 2002 the company embarked on a new phase, when Sr. Luís Vasconcelos took complete control of its management and moved the company to where it is now. Since then, its installations have progressively grown to keep up with the increase in business and client portfolio.
We would like to point out two events of significant importance which define the identity of our company. We could say that one is linked to the other and would be difficult to take place without the other beforehand. We can define 2013 and 2014 as a period of reengineering processes with an aim to improve our competitiveness and when, after radically revising our processes, COMET was able to provide better performance levels in efficiency and effectiveness.
In 2014, we obtained the ISO 9001:2008 certification, putting a positive seal on our reengineering and enabling us to improve the quality of our services. In addition to this, we also received the EN 1090 certification which guarantees the quality of our services, in particular the welding carried out by our team.
As a result of our technical competence, this was the boost we needed for the professionalism of our production process and a guarantee to launch into internationalisation, more specifically the export of products such as precast concrete moulds and its accessories which came about in 2015.
In 2017, the certification ISO 9001:2008 was replaced by ISO 9001:2015 whereby risk management together with the management of the whole process were determinant factors and crucial for its success.
