General information

Short Summary
This Portuguese based company with over 20 years’ experience in painting small objects and accessories for industry in any sector of activity is offering its capabilities to partners. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a commercial agency, distribution or manufacturing agreement.
Full Description
The Portuguese SME is dedicated to surface treatment and enhancement solutions, from paint finishes to pad printing, glazing, enameling and polishing to deliver small parts with the finished results that the different industries need to perform better and last longer.
The company’s high-performance paint finishes are used not only by the textile, footwear and fashion industries (through finishing techniques for buttons, buckles, sliders, rivets, zippers, eyelets, heel protectors, leather goods and trimmings, among other accessories) and the construction and metal industry (solutions used for waterproofing, protecting and extending the life of a wide range of accessories, as screws and rivets, fixing and fastener objects, door and furniture fittings), but also by the cutlery, jewelry and the automotive industries. Other bespoke projects undertaken by the team include painted rice for weddings, capsules for sealing spirits bottles and painted glass.
Thanks to a close collaboration with companies licensed to collect, treat and dispose the hazardous waste produced and handled by the company, this SME makes sure its activity causes no harm or damage and is committed to maximizing resource recovery through the re-use, recycling and recovery of plastic and metal waste and leftover paint.
Furthermore, the company operates an open-door policy with its partners, offering them complete transparency throughout the entire cycle.
The SME is looking to expand outside of Portugal and needs commercial agents to represent its products in new markets. They are also keen to work directly with wholesalers and retailers under a distribution services agreement. The company is also interested in signing manufacturing agreements with partners looking for paint finishes for their small accessories.
The company has the following certification standards: ISO 9001: 2015; Lean Management; Oeko-Tex Class 1 (5992CIT); EN ISO 9227 - 2012: Class 4; EN ISO 6272 - 1: 2011; EN ISO 2409: 2013.
