Memmert’s Important People

Unbelievable but true! Nearly 6 decades ago, business relations began between the families of Miguel Alves Barata and Christiane Riefler-Karpa. The managing director of the Portuguese company Concessus S.A. gives three reasons why this cooperation became ever more stable over the years: an honest relationship, the high quality of Memmert products and the company culture. Today, in the third generation, the cooperation is still trustful and both sides benefit from the flat hierarchy of the two family-owned companies. Thanks to the personal contact and short decision-making processes, any open questions can be answered quickly and directly.

With close to 30 employees, subsidiaries in Lisbon and Porto and its own service team, Concessus is perfectly set out for the future as one of the leading suppliers of laboratory equipment in Portugal. Right from the beginning, the company concentrated on consulting services in the fields of science, research and quality assurance in industry.
Some years ago, Concessus began to also focus on medicine and hospitals. Customers from these sophisticated branches do not simply order goods from a catalogue but need competent application advice and comprehensive after-sales service. For Miguel Barata, the great strength of his company therefore lies in the qualification of his external sales force and service technicians. The logical consequence of this company philosophy, of course, is that he only offers brands of the highest possible quality standards.
