Our Company

KOPPtec is a Portugal based consultancy firm with German speaking origins.

We are a group of highly experienced senior professionals seeking challenges around the globe.

We have been building bridges between Portugal, the German Speaking Countries and across continents.

We dedicate ourselves to support companies in the areas of process and quality management, customer relationship, supplier development and strategic orientation, beyond borders and cultures.

We believe in human strength, assertive communication and the perfect definition of processes.

Our Principle - Quality

If you think that quality is expensive - try ignorance

“Quality” is perceived in many different ways.
The average consumer considers quality to be simply perfect, for industrial staff it is a functional area of the company, for others it is a waste of money.

For us, quality is the cornerstone of successful business, the basis for highly satisfied customers, the root of competitive production, the recipe to assure the future.

  • Quality is the art of producing exactly according to customer specification
  • Quality is assured by a well running process
  • Quality is achieved through proper product and process design
  • Quality is ambitious: usually it requires constant methodic improvement to reach top level

Our Concept

We use technical skill to improve processes, life experience to motivate people and cultural awareness to connect companies beyond borders.

Our Team

Ready to do whatever it takes.
