Canary Award for Business Excellence

We are very proud to have received the Canarian Award for Business Excellence in its XI edition, in the category of Small Non-Industrial Business, awarded by the Ministries of Tourism, Industry and Commerce; and the Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Government of the Canary Islands, from the councilor Elena Máñez of the latter, during the 1st Congress of the Industry of the Canary Islands CICAN2022.

We want to thank both ministries for giving visibility to the Canarian industry in this time of global uncertainty that we live in, which reminds us day by day of the importance of having our own strong industry to minimize external dependencies. In this edition, technology-based and knowledge-intensive companies like ours are also made visible, which with the help of the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society (ACIISI) have been able to position ourselves to compete globally in the field of robotics for inspection, maintenance and cleaning of industrial assets.
