ERGICON is an engineering and construction company that emerged as a result of a shareholder restructuring of its predecessor building company ACTICON – Engenharia e Construção.
ERGICON was thus created with the majority shareholding of the same founding shareholder of ACTICON, which was recognized as a great success story in the Civil Construction and Public Works sector.
ERGICON stands out for its strong and functional partnership with its Clients, implementing constructive solutions and methods that may contribute proactively for the rigorous and effective implementation of projects, without forgoing the high quality standards in construction and, not less important, in absolute conjunction with meeting deadlines.
The group is characterised by the strong implementation capacity and discipline in conducting projects, based on the dynamic and entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, reinforced by the technical and professional soundness of the management team, who has recognisably gained experience and knowledge over more than two decades in the construction sector in Portugal and Angola.
The group strives for respect and appreciation of its most important resources – the employees and professionals in the sector – who every day, project by project, in a dedicated and competent way, help write the history of the various companies.
Strengthen the construction sector in all the geographies where it operates, adding competence to the sector through know-how with innovation and resilience, rigour and an excellent technique in the implementation of projects, generating value for our clients, partners and shareholders.
Provide the market with real and local knowledge, with the best international standards of corporate and individual expertise, actively contributing to improving the quality of life of citizens.
