On Thursday, July 3, Guiton® was awarded the "Highlights of Civil Engineering 2015". The event was held at IMEC, Mining Institute of Civil Engineering in Belo Horizonte, Ouro Minas Palace Hotel.
Guiton was the most recommended in the category "Machinery and Equipment - Baskets and platforms for lifting loads and People". To decide the winning companies, the Institute conducts an internal research, named Contest, with all its 7000 engineers and associates. "It is an honor to receive this award in another state, such a prestigious institute as IMEC. We worked hard to finally receive this award. It was worth it", says the CEO, Marcos Chiarinelli. Only this year, the company Julio Simões Logística (JSL) bought 100 equipment for its new segment of the equipment leasing market, which were granted by contract to AES Sul (owned by AES Eletropaulo Group).
The company expects to prosper further with the entry of the second half, even in a critical scenario of the Brazilian economy. According to the CEO, despite the economic recess, civil engineering retreated slightly on their investments, which enabled the growth of Guiton even in adverse conditions. Guiton®, that next year will complete 18 years of market, is located in the neighborhood Santa Rosa Ipês and is one of the largest domestic manufacturers of hydraulic platforms for lifting people, especially the Isolated Air baskets.
