Prudêncio was considered a PME Leader in 2019 by IAPMEI

It is with great pride and satisfaction that we announce the attribution of the PME Líder 2019 statute to our company by IAPMEI. Find out more about this distinction that reflects the effort and dedication of an entire team.





What does the PME Líder status mean?

The PME Líder status was launched by IAPMEI (Institute of Support to Small and Medium Enterprises and Innovation) in 2008, within the scope of the FINCRESCE Program, with the objective of distinguishing the merit of national SMEs with superior performances. It is thus a reputation seal for companies.


This seal is awarded in partnership with Turismo de Portugal, a group of partner banks and Mutual Guarantee Societies, based on the best rating and economic-financial indicators.


Acquiring this status is a very important achievement, as it gives companies notoriety and provides them with optimized financing conditions so that they can develop their growth strategies and strengthen their competitive base.

The group of SME Leaders that present the best performances will also be awarded annually with the status of SME Excellence, having access to more notoriety and benefits.

What are the benefits?

With the central objective of improving the risk profile and encouraging companies to achieve their strategic ambition, the PME Líder and PME Excelência statuses have a set of facilities centered on three fundamental dimensions:


  • Inside the company
