More than 40 years of experience

With three production centers spread over two continents, the group’s companies are distinguished for quality, innovation and business ethics in the countries where they operate and market their wide range of products.

The Fersil Group began its journey in 1978 with the company FERSIL - Freitas & Silva, with which it was associated, five years later, with IBOTEC - Indústria de Tubagens, in a perspective of expanding its action in the market. Aiming at continuing the successful trajectory and strengthening its position in Africa, the Group inaugurated, in 2007, a new and modern manufacturing unit in Angola, FIL - Tubos Angola, Lda., and five years later appears, Fersil Moçambique, Lda which for strategic reasons was demobilized in 2020.

The search for new frontiers

Regarding the complementarity of the Group’s companies and in response to the requirements of the product distribution process, in 2009 Themaguia - Exportação e Importação was created.

Africa emerged naturally, in the expansion strategy, as a market alternative, not only because of the existing ties with the African people, but also because of the emerging need for infrastructure, which led to the creation of several programs for water supply and basic sewage in the populations, as well as encouraging irrigation projects that are the mainstay of growth in food production.

With the growing contribution of the African markets, the dependence on the Iberian market was reduced, which allowed to overcome the serious crisis in the construction sector that hit this market.
