I Marques Exports

In 2014, the Marques Group decided to expand its presence to other regions, having for that purpose created an autonomous structure suited for the carrying out of international businesses. This initiative was founded on the intent to promote the utilisation and export of the derived products of the endogenous resources of the Autonomous Region of the Azores, using to that effect the industrial capacity, the logistical means and the management skills that the Group possesses.

Regardless of the incipient nature of this sector, the sales value for external markets already reaches a relevant figure and, above all, grows at a fast pace. The Group’s international sales already amounted to 0.5 million Euro in 2015, having grown to 0.9 million in the following year and in 2017 they are expected to exceed the goal of 1.2 million Euro.

Main products:

  • . Timber: a considerable quantity of the exports corresponds for now to processed wood in the form of boards and beams of the dominant species in the regional forest (Cryptomeria Japonica), having the North American and European continents as main markets.
  • . Stone: aggregates of basalt, basalt slabs, black and red lapilli, pyroclasts, among others.
  • . Others: fish, fresh food products (tropical vegetables and fruits), various plants and algae, as well as essential oils extracted therefrom, intended for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
