Paka Services_Gazelle Company 2019

We are very proud to announce that Paka Services (Paka II – Systems & Services, Lda.) has been named a “Gazelle Company 2019”.

In 2019, we were one of 112 companies in the Central Region that, in a short period of time, showed accelerated growth in employment and turnover.

The Gazelle Company concept corresponds to young companies with high growth rates. They are innovative organizations that position themselves differently in the markets, making a strong contribution to creating jobs and wealth for the region.

The CCDRC (Comissão de Coordenação e Desenvolvimento Regional do Centro) has identified the gazelle companies for 2019, which are those that cumulatively:

. They showed turnover growth of more than 20% per year in 2016, 2017 and 2018;

. They were set up in 2010 and have their headquarters in the Central Region;

. They employed at least 10 workers in 2018;

. They had a turnover of 500,000 euros or more in 2018.

Isabel Damasceno, president of the CCDRC, said: “These 112 companies represent the economic and entrepreneurial dynamism and sectoral diversity of the Centro region. Even in difficult circumstances, often in vulnerable territories, they are a sample of all the companies and entrepreneurs who dare to bet, take risks and undertake on a daily basis. Over the last eight years, we have been accompanying this segment of companies that we would like to see multiplied and distributed throughout the Centro region, given their contribution to job and wealth creation.”

-Isabel Damasceno, (President CCDRC)

Given the pandemic scenario we are currently experiencing, with all the constraints and uncertainties that have arisen in society, in the markets and in the business fabric, this distinction makes us believe that we are on the right track and gives us the encouragement we need to continue working every day with the utmost dedication and professionalism.

Thanks to all our staff, who are a key part of this distinction, which belongs to all of us.
