The Communication and Marketing teams of CUF and the other companies of the José de Mello Group got together, on April 13, in a meeting that had as main objectives furthering the alignment with the Group's Values, Vision, Mission and Strategy, the sharing of experiences and knowledge and the presentation of new trends in marketing and communication.
The financial support that resulted from the 2017 edition of the Ser Solidário (Be Compassionate) initiative at CUF, José de Mello and José de Mello Saúde, was handed to the recipients on April 12. The Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor, the Passo a Passo Association and Santa Maria de Avanca’s Parish Social Center were the three entities most voted by CUF’s donors. Each charity received four thousand euros.
CUF Worker’s District, in Barreiro, and the new Rua da União, that connects it to the old factory complex, have reasons to celebrate. This was the place chosen by the artist Vhils to create his largest mural piece to date.
CUF and the other chemical companies behind PACOPAR – Air Liquide, AQP, CIRES and Dow Portugal – have provided financial support in excess of 38,000 euros to help carry out eight projects in Estarreja.
The “Get to Know the José de Mello Group” Programme is already in its 20th edition. At the beginning of March, around two dozen new employees came to discover the various business platforms that make up the José de Mello Group.
The Estarreja Chemical Complex (ECC) was visited by the Portuguese Minister of Economy, Manuel Caldeira Cabral, who thus had first-hand contact with the relevance of this cluster of the National Chemical Industry and the opportunities and challenges for its competitiveness. The event was attended by João de Mello, CUF’s CEO, Jon Bilbao, Dow’s General Manager for Portugal and Spain, Cristina Ballester, Air Liquide’s General Manager for Portugal and Spain, and Luís Montelobo, Representative Delegate of the Board of Directors of Management of CIRES, as well as other executives of ECC companies.
