The Opinion of our
Customers Matter
Manuela Tavares de Sousa
CEO - Imperial-Produtos Alimentares, S.A.
INEGI is an institution that stands out in the support to the industry having recognised skills and great value in the area of energy consulting. For our company, INEGI did the diagnosis of the HVAC system operation which was extremely valuable for us, allowing the identification of alternative solutions to improve the performance of this system in an expressive way.
