The industrial diversification strategy also aims to strengthen the Group and all its brands, by prioritizing the penetration of other sectors with high growth potential, so that we can develop new capabilities and create wealth and employment.

The synergies generated by our activities enable us to be at the forefront of technology and create new concepts, lines of action and services that result in future growth.
