We are market leaders (Iberian) in the awnings and metal-textile covers, both in their manufacture and sale, whether in their installation and maintenance, represented by the company Valente & Lopes Ltd., and the COVER brand. Over the years, pushed the creativity, training in skills and develop structures with the best technologies, for the implementation of new and attractive designs.

In 2007, we presented a new value proposition. We extended the commitment into the sector of car wash, through first of all, the construction of their covers, to the further development of all the necessary infrastructures. The BEMARTEX Engineering Industry (Portugal) appeared in 2010, as a result of the need to optimize resources in the area of steel structures, import and export, commitment on the project development and construction works.

As we operate not only on the domestic market, we are aware and focused on internationalization, with the objective to give a global response to our customers. In this context, we created the companies ABRIE & TECHNOLOGIE (France), in 2011, and COVERPARK (Spain) in 2013, especially suited for the construction of covers and steel structures for service areas, gas stations and large hyper and supermarket chains. The MAROC Abris was born in 2012; acquired in part by the Valente & Lopes Group in 2016 is in full operation and growth in Morocco.

In the national territory, we created the company TECWASH (Portugal), in 2015, meeting the needs and requirements of our customers, with the sale, installation and maintenance of products, parts and equipment necessary for car wash. Despite the strong emphasis on national territory of TECWASH (awarded the innovation award at the Expomecânica 2016), this company is also a reflection of the internationalization of the Group, since it is present in France and Morocco.

We also have several partnerships and consortia in countries such as Colombia, Cuba and India.
