Técnicas de Contentorização, Lda (TEC Portugal) is dedicated to the design and manufacturing of lifting equipments for general and container cargo, for the port and logistic industry and also for ships.
Founded in 1990, TEC Portugal succeeds to the company António Germino, Lda, specialized in the manufacturing of naval accessories (blocks, tackles, shackles, wire ropes and accessories, winches, etc.), fishing vessels and lifting accessories since 1925.
At the beginning of the century, available technology had at the time some mechanical component in the products but still relied a lot in manual labor.
With the international commerce having the need to reduce the transit times from factory to customer, the container appears on the shipping and logistics industry as the mean of transport – a steel box with standardized dimensions – which allowed to optimize the void spaces in the vessel’s hull and deck and reduce the transit times between the origin and the destination of the cargo.
TEC Portugal followed the containerization phenomenon and launches itself on the Portuguese and PALOP (African countries with Portuguese based language) market, with the lashing components for containers and general cargo, as well as the container spreaders.
Because not all cargo is containerizable, TEC Portugal designs and manufactures lifting equipments for general cargo, such as lifting beams and spreaders and it manufactures the lifting accessories of which are incorporated on the manufactured lifting beams.
