Grupo TPB is a Portuguese multinational with a prominent place in the industrial, logistic and urban concrete floor sector. It is the market leader in the Iberian Peninsula and is expanding rapidly to new European markets and in North Africa.
With a history of three decades, the Grupo TPB follows a strategy of progressive and sustained growth based on two key factors:
KNOW-HOW | A team of professionals with extensive experience allows Grupo TPB companies to work the floors from their origin, from selection of raw materials to form and means of application on site.
A WAY OF BEING | As important as know-how, is the way of being in the market, with employees, customers, partners and suppliers, always with the values that mark the path of the Grupo TPB.
Provide services, develop and market products with quality assurance, satisfaction and value creation for customers, partners, employees, shareholders and society in general, always on the basis of respect for safety, environment and social responsibility criteria.
Grupo TPB wants to be an European leader in the areas in which it operates, betting on innovation through experimental development and the incorporation of new technologies, as well as specialization of human resources as differentiating factors in the market.
Grupo TPB is recognized for its values of confidence, seriousness, professionalism, competence and quality. It is in respecting these values and principles of know-how and way of being that the Grupo TPB has created a culture that enables it to overcome increasingly demanding challenges.
“We are looking for excellence in every situation, we respect every kind of job and assume our work.”
Jaime Dias da Silva
Jaime Dias da Silva, Grupo TPB founder, began out his career in the application of concrete floors in France, the most technologically developed country in Europe at the time, in the building sector. The technical support provided by a French topographer and his interest in this area led the young man, who was just 20 years old, to adquire technical knowledge and to actively follow the evolution of the sector.
Return to Portugal
On his return to Portugal , Jaime Dias da Silva became one of the pioneers in the paving industry, putting into practice the technical knowledges acquired in France and starting to form future pavers.
In this decade, he made industrial paving in grand works foreign, especially in the Maghreb countries.
TPB – Tecno Pavimentos e Betonilhas, Lda was founded in 1989, and this is through this company that the history of the Grupo TPB can be delineated. Later, it reinforced structures, redefined strategies and, in 2002, was renamed TPB – Tecnologia em Pavimentos e Construção, SA.
The first big step in TPB's internationalization is taken to Spain, with the establishment of SOLEI – Tecnología en Pavimentos.
With TPB customers increasing significantly and in response to a latent need in the construction sector, Grupo TPB invests in the manufacture and sale of construction products and creates JRP - Produtos e Revestimentos, currently specialized in the production of dry-shake hardeners and metal formwork for expansion and construction joints.
JRP Maroc and INDUFLOOR
Grupo TPB internationalization process continues with the creation of JRP Maroc - Technologie des Sols en Béton, company dedicated to the design, sale and application of concrete floors in Morocco.
Grupo TPB reaffirms its position in the market and constitutes INDUFLOOR – Industrial Floor Sistems and starts offering integral solutions for concrete floors.
Grupo TPB consolidate it presence in the French market and creates TPB France – Technologie des Sols en Béton.
