Export

In 1991 the first sales were made to customers in Portugal and it meant the beginning of the first activities abroad. The entry strategy consisted in carrying out direct sales activities to potential customers as well as to the decision centres, located in Spain, with the aim of promoting the prescription of our products and services to their subcontractors in Portugal.

The entry into France in 2002 occurred through subsidiary companies of French groups present in Spain with which we already had strong commercial relationships. Differentiation occurs basically by excellence in the provision of customised services during the after-sale process.

In 2014 export meant 64% of CARRASCO’s sales. The most representative client countries are: France, Romania, Poland, Portugal, Morocco, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland and Slovakia among others.
