Objectives, activities and expected/achieved results:

This project by Manuel António Pinheiro da Cunha, Unip. Lda (MAP) aims to increase its production capacity from 100 rollers/day to 500 rollers/day through a more efficient, automated production process with greater precision, using computer-aided design techniques.

MAP intends to introduce to the market rollers with distinctive functional characteristics that meet the needs of the maritime sector, particularly for conveyor belts in seaports, so the rollers to be produced will be durable, anti-abrasive and resistant to salt spray.

The main objectives are:

– To increase its presence in foreign markets;
– Increase its production capacity through a more efficient, automated production process with greater precision, using computer-aided design techniques;
– Investing in the digitalisation of the production process, so that production information is accessible to all departments in real time;
– Utilising renewable energies to generate clean energy and reduce costs;
– Investing in marketing capacities, by defining the approach to new segments and markets that will be followed by the new international commercial and the creation of the company’s website;
– Creating a brand for the rollers and boosting its MAP RUBBER BELTS brand on the international market;
– Creating new skilled jobs.
