Last march the General Assembly of AlmaScience approved a new associate – FIRMO. With more than 60 years of history and established in the great Oporto area, FIRMO is a Portuguese company producing and distributing paper-based school and office supplies.
For AlmaScience it is of great relevance to have FIRMO onboard as an associate, as noted by our Scientific and Technical Director, Luís Pereira :
“FIRMO is a major player in the market of paper-based school and office supplies. Despite being a well-established business, we believe there is space for innovation in integrating physical and digital solutions. By combining the FIRMO market knowledge with the technological solutions that can be provided by AlmaScience, I expect innovative solutions with high market potential to be developed”.
For FIRMO, on the other hand, as stated by its CEO Rui Carvalho, joining AlmaScience represents an opportunity to reinforce its R&D strategy, in the pursuit of new solutions for technological and sustainable new products. FIRMO is sure that this collaboration will translate in future technological advances that will bring to life products that will be able to disrupt the school and office supplies market, contributing for the competitive affirmation of FIRMO as a leader in the sector where it operates".
