Gecim was founded in 1988, having as main focus the selling and exclusive representation of Mold-Masters' hot runners in Portugal.
The main objective of its activity was to never be merely a product seller company, but to state its place in the market as a technological element.
The company privileged being a technological partner, providing polymer injection solutions in the hot runners area.
In 1997, a new business opportunity was identified within the same market, but in the area of hydraulics, and aiming to extend the range of solutions offered to its costumers, Gecim started the exclusive representation of VEGA's hydraulic/pneumatics products in Portugal.
In 2013, Gecim start a new partnership with DME for the Portuguese market. Together we expect to improve the DME presence in Portugal as to continue their tradition.
Having Gecim the partnership with Mold-Masters and DME and these being owned by Milacron group, in 2016 expanded to the injection machines activity, Ferromatik, in order to extend the strategy of Milacron in Portugal.
Gecim became a Milacron partner in Portugal for brands: Mold-Masters, DME and Ferromatik.
In 2019 Hillenbrand acquire the Milacron Group.
In order to provide our customers with better production performance, both in terms of technology and in terms of profitability, GECIM began developing a process to optimize the cleaning of injection units and hot runners, reducing time, costs to change material, color even in maintenance cleanup.
We started this activity in 2019 with the representation of Ultra System, a partnership that provides us with 5th generation purge materials, experience and knowledge.
In 2021 GECIM presents Weber as a new technology partner. Weber is a company that manufactures high-quality turntables and index plates at a good price/performance ratio.
Over time, we have had an increase in services and skills to keep up with market developments and this feel that we are a true partner to our customers.
