ABOUT INALCO
“Building a business is knowing how to do something to be proud of, is to create something that will make a real difference in other people’s lives.”

Richard Bronson

Inalco was created in 1973 by its founder, José Silva Santos, as an aluminum and iron construction industry. The country has grown into a new era and the company has grown.

Pool enclosuress were far from being a relevant piece in a house-building project. In the early 1990s, the vision of new consumer habits and the will to innovate made us realize that an investment is only worthwhile when it is enjoyed all year long, just like our home, that is, when it is forever.

That is why in the same decade, together with so many other revolutions in terms of technology, culture, values and ideals, the Coverpool International brand was born, and Inalco dedicated itself to the manufacture and assembly of pool coverings. A project that we embrace every day as if it were the last, but with the certainty that it is undoubtedly forever.

ABOUT COVERPOOL
“Building a business is knowing how to do something to be proud of, is to create something that will make a real difference in other people’s lives.”

COVERPOOL® has designed, manufactured and installed over 2 decades of experience in pool covers, thousands of roofs in mainland Portugal, Madeira, the Azores and beyond, in countries in Europe and North Africa.

The company’s productive growth is accompanied by technologically sustainable growth, with the company having acquired new manufacturing and project support equipment in recent years. In June 2012, as needed, we moved to larger facilities with better working conditions and are now installed in an industrial unit in Loures.

COVERPOOL® has recently started a partnership with the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Instituto Superior Técnico, where structural analysis of the roofs is carried out and a Research and Development project for the COVERPOOL® roofs has also been launched. Concern about the environment is present and all materials from manufacturing wastes are recycled by certified companies.

We continue, as in the beginning, to bet on a totally Portuguese manufacture, which goes from the extrusion and lacquering of our profiles, to the manufacture and installation of the cover. We strive to maintain a close business relationship with the customer and above all to be present whenever necessary!
