At the same time, TECO's global market layout has been strengthened and its revenue share in Europe has been increased, which has added another growth momentum to TECO's performance and brought significant revenue injection.
TECO points out that Motovario S.p.A. was established in 1965 and is headquartered in Italy, with its main business being the production and sale of power transmission related products such as gear reducers and motors. Motovario S.p.A. has production bases in Italy and Spain with highly automated production capacity and over 150 distribution channels in 60 countries, and after the acquisition of Pujol, a Spanish reducer manufacturer with a long history, in 2014, it has successfully expanded the application fields of its products, and its future growth performance is expected.
In addition, with Motovario S.p.A's complete distribution network and stable profitability, TECO can serve as the cornerstone for TECO to stand in the European market and quickly increase TECO's effective coverage and market share in Europe.
