These recognitions reward all the effort made during 2020, which meant a new stopping point and impulse: an important change for us.
Within the framework of COVID-19, on 16 March (the day we were confined to the national level) the company literally incorporated 5 more people into the team. Half a year later, we have maintained the usual staff and we have consolidated those who joined, increasing to ten people with a constant rhythm of work and project development, and facing the situation as a unit, with faith that all this was going to happen, and relying on the work that we had on the table at that time, without looking anywhere else than the fixation of moving forward…
