Adico, founded in 1920 by Com. Adelino Dias Costa, is part of the small group of SMEs in Portugal that are assigned with the distinction of “SME Leader” and is still today a family business with capital fully Portuguesel, which over the years has developed a huge effort to overcome the barriers of internationalization. Currently one of the approaches of Adico, is the design "spoken in Portuguese", an area that is particularly sensitive and which has contributed to and stimulated this dynamic, opening its doors to the Portuguese creators who, in fact, bet on a career.
Adico - short history
The company started its activity in the 1920s with the production of iron beds. In the 30s it orientated its production to the hospital furniture showing a remarkable aptitude for sophisticated technologies at that time, such as hydraulic surgery tables. In that period, Adico develops a production line of tables and chairs for outdoors among which the traditional portuguese chair was marked. In the 40s, Adico had already about 350 workers and dominated the exports for the market of portuguese ex-colonies and becoming the biggest company in the hospital furniture. Since the 90s, Adico has focused on developing new lines of furniture, by focusing on design and technology in the medical field, with which it has been distinguished on the national and international market.
