The genesis of the Valente & Lopes Group's success story dates back to 1995, in Murtosa, Aveiro district, with the creation of the parent company: Valente & Lopes. In a few years, it transformed a small manufacturing unit into a successful business group, leader in the Iberian market in the metal-textile covers sector (multiple patented models). 25 years later, it creates metal structures with solar panels for car parking - solar carport - in a clear bet on a sustainable future - and penetrates into another business area: innovative structures for car wash. Proof of constant growth, in this year in which it has been 25 years of existence, it invests in Civil Construction, developing projects and works in the area. Our products are CE marked.
Whether in the cover sector (metal-textile and metal with solar panels - solar carport) or in car wash solutions, GRUPO VALENTE & LOPES works hard every day to establish a relationship of trust with customers, guaranteeing great levels of internal and external efficiency. A strong investment in R&D, highly skilled Human Resources, associated with excellent manufacturing capabilities allow us to offer numerous opportunities for products and services, a clear focus on differentiation and quality.

We began our history as company Valente & Lopes in 1995 in Murtosa , Aveiro. With the rise of the organization, combined with strategic partnerships, has imposed the need of creation, 25 years after VALENTE & LOPES Group, based on a solid experience of more than two decades , under the slogans of persistence, learning and constant evolution.
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.
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.
In 2018, we started a big bet on innovation and the future, through the creation of solar carport.
2020 is the year in which we complete 25 years of existence. Proof of steady growth, we reinforced the presence in Civil Construction, as a result of the need to optimize resources, investing in the development of projects and works in the area.
We also have several partnerships and consortia in countries such as Colombia, Lithuania, Romania and the Czech Republic.
