Galucho, desde 1920

The century-old Portuguese exporter Galucho, a limited company of family origin, manufacturer of agricultural machinery and transport equipment, celebrated its 50th anniversary on April 30 as an AIP member.

José Justino is the current Chairman of the Board of Directors and representative of the third generation of the company, which was founded in São João das Lampas in 1920, by the hand of José Galucho - José Francisco Justino, baptismal name -, having a young man of entrepreneurial spirit that specializes in the development of plows and plows.

Galucho, which has Nuno Gama Lobo as CEO, grew and quickly became a reference brand in agricultural equipment and recognized for the quality and durability of the products it produces. Later, from 2000 onwards, and based on the knowledge acquired, on engineering and on its own technology, it dedicated itself to a new business sector - that of transport equipment - with which it responds to the transport needs of different types of goods in areas as diverse as construction and public works, mining, forestry and container transport.

The strong engineering component that characterizes it, since its beginnings, extended to this business area that has been growing over the years.

Determining for the business success were the various investments made in the manufacturing infrastructure, in the installation of sophisticated means of production and in the creation of a Team of Engineers wholly dedicated to the development of new products using modern tools and software, which allow optimizing projects and applying Engineering solutions of great precision and product reliability.

With more than 100 years of activity, Galucho currently has production centers in Portugal (São João das Lampas and Albergaria) and some strategic partners for the distribution of equipment in international markets, having already exported throughout its history to more than 100 countries.
