GHENOVA, an international multi-disciplinary engineering company, will receive the Alas Award on Wednesday. This is granted by the Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment of the regional government of Andalusia through Extenda (Trade Promotion Agency of Andalusia). This prize recognizes the internationalization process that the company, whose main office is in Seville, has undergone. The ceremony will take place at 19:30 in the PITA (Science and Technology Park of Almeria). Francisco Cuervas, partner and CEO of GHENOVA, will attend the event to represent the whole team.
The company has been awarded this prize in the “International Expansion” category on account of their capabilities to establish themselves in several European and Latin American countries, as well as of the remarkable results this expansion has brought about. GHENOVA was founded in 2006 by means of an MBO (Management Buy Out). That year 26% of their turnover was recorded abroad. Today more than 90% of their revenue derives from international markets. As a matter of fact, the firm estimates an increase of 30% in their revenues in the current financial year thanks to their many projects around the world. Given this optimistic balance and the predictions for the next few years, GHENOVA is a magnet for talent, which will help achieve the objective to reach 700 professionals and revenues of 50 million euros by 2020.
The company has offices in Germany, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Norway and the Netherlands, along with local offices in Spain located in Seville and Ferrol. At present they are also working on projects of naval, offshore, aeronautics, and industrial engineering for some of the largest companies in these sectors in countries like Bolivia, France, Japan, Mexico, Poland and Portugal.
According to Francisco Cuervas, CEO: “Our successful expansion abroad is not only related to the quality of our services and engineering solutions, but also to our relationship with our clients. We try to get close to them, both physically and culturally.” He added: “In order to manage that, we have a team of highly qualified professionals who are flexible and eager to work on international projects.”
