EGITRON, Solutions for Quality Control and Inspection

Our mission at EGITRON is to provide our customers with the best solutions for the inspection and quality control of their products and at the same time seeking the satisfaction of our employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders, respecting the community and the environment.

Due to our geographical location, close to the world's leading manufacturers of cork products, we started by developing specific hardware and software for this industry and therefore we still want the consolidation of our position as the world leader in the development and commercialization of equipment and software for quality control of cork products. Nonetheless, with the continued expansion to other industrial sectors, we also aspire for the acknowledgement of being a leading company and also a reference in providing solutions for quality control of products / materials, and also laboratory software as well as software for statistical process control.

Innovation and excellence, dedication to the client, professionalism, internal development and a clear orientation towards results are the values that lead us to this day and which resulted in the provision of our solutions to several industrial sectors in about 40 countries.
