Those who usually receive and read our newsletters may think that we have forgotten to present it in the last months. Actually, the year 2015 has gone by so fast that we cannot produce elements able to show what we have been up to those who follow us! However, like the saying goes, better late than never. To compensate this absence we have decided to summarize what we have been doing throughout this year in a magazine format.
The year 2015 has been a year of consolidation of many processes, mainly at an international level. The big bet was in China and we have won! We are already developing several projects in that country and the first works have already taken off, such as a hospital in Guanghzou and a new unit of the Y-Long Resorts and Hotels. In Africa, apart from consolidating the market in Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana and Cape Verde, new markets have arisen, such as Guinea Conakry, Congo, Benin and Ivory Coast. In Latin America we have opened a delegation in Peru.
All this expansion has demanded a lot of organization work because, regardless of the so called crisis in Portugal, we were able to grow within our own country, in terms of business volume/awarded projects, as well as regarding our team through hiring of more human resources. All of this was due to a lot of effort and dedication from a team who gives their best so that VHM can grow and persevere. This is why this magazine is dedicated to the workers, who are the company’s heritage. It is that heritage we wish to honour, thanking and presenting our full gratitude! Thank you all very much!
We would not wish to end without leaving a message to the future. In this period of uncertainty we have to continue working as we have been doing up to this day, because therefore time will go by faster and when we look by the window we will realize we continue to be contra-cyclical.
Thank You All
Vitor Hugo Leal Gomes
