Employee Testimonials

Joaquim Ferreira

Former production manager

At Cachapuz we have always worked hard and well. We already dominated the market in 1950. We developed weighbridges for railways, traffic police and to all major national companies. We used to build 60 weighbridges a year, all mechanical! In the 60s, we had many trading relationships in Africa, especially in Mozambique and Tunisia. I remember a huge order we got for Cuba, after the revolution on April 25th! It was 30 weighbridges, 6 metres each, to weigh the sugar cane production, 2 weighbridges with 20×3.5 for the Havana Customs Office and another 4, measuring 18 metres each.

José Agostinho

Former assembler

I started working for Cachapuz in 1947: I left 2 months before completing 50 years of service at the company. That’s half a century. Besides myself, five of my children have worked here (and some still do). This company is like a family. However, back in the day, we worked a lot more and did everything: we welded and cut iron. When we travelled (to assemble weighbridges), we would stay over a month away from home, like when we went to the Azores.

António Miranda

Former production technician

I worked at Cachapuz five times, I emigrated and worked for several competitors. What makes Cachapuz unique is that it is the ‘mother’, i.e. it was the pioneer, all the others were just followers. For example, we were the ones that designed and manufactured the CPFs (anti-fraud scales, produced in the 70s)!

Joaquim Silva

Former production technician

Cachapuz monopolised everything. I travelled abroad for work several times: two or three times to Mozambique and Angola, after I had been there in the military. We faced some difficulties in Tunisia, due to cultural differences, but as any Portuguese, we adapted and it never compromised our commercial contracts, quite the opposite! I left Cachapuz less than a year ago. It was the best thing I had in life, these 48 years at the company. I have no bad memories.
