Our History

Sotécnica was founded on August 27, 1951 by Eng. Mr. Octávio Sengo dos Santos and Eng. Mr. Bernardo de Sousa and Holstein Beck.

The company started its activity in a small space located on Rua da Escola Politécnica, in Lisbon. It soon gained a deserved prominence for its innovation and technical capacity, achieving, still during the decade of 50, its first major work of industrial installations: the refinery of Sacor, in Cabo Ruivo, Lisbon.

At the end of the 60s, the result of an exemplary progress in its activity in the market, Sotécnica acquires land in São Julião do Tojal (Loures) and transfers its headquarters and manufacturing facilities to the address it maintains until the present day. Over the following decades, the company extended its representation in Continental Portugal with units in the cities of Oporto, Coimbra, Évora and Faro and, in the Autonomous Regions, on the cities of Funchal (Madeira) and Ponta Delgada (Azores). At the international level, Sotécnica is present in Angola, through SotAng, and in Mozambique with SotMoz.

In the year 2005, Sotécnica became part of the VINCI group, the world’s most prestigious group of civil construction and associated services, through VINCI Energies’ branch. This incorporation allowed Sotécnica to integrate a group with more than 1,600 business units spread throughout the world, opening doors to international expansion, digital transformation and know-how in search for the optimization of infrastructures for energy efficiency.

After more than 65 years of activity and great achievements, Sotécnica is a historical portuguese company and one of the main players in the market of multi-technical services.
