"We started our journey in 2006 and this gives us the title of favorite sons of the crisis. The change of environment, the uncertainty and the lack of financial resources, sharpened our instinct to think different. And thinking different was not thinking like a micro-SME, which is what we really were, but thinking as an international company. Developing an improper ambition of our size and trajectory, and clinging frantically to innovation as our only rescue."
This year Molecor© will be present at various events worldwide, Smagua, Plastic Pipes and K2016 among others, exposing its latest technology developments and TOM® pipes following its path divulgation of the outstanding features of PVC-O.
