During the summer of 1991, in the green plains of Minho, in the town of Valença the first roots were implemented for the growth of the Pelé Group, by the shareholders José da Ponte and José Pereira, whom are still an active part of the group.
In the beginning, the main activity were imports and exports of granite blocks, an activity which is still occurring, but latter, due to the youth and enthusiasm of the two industrious shareholders, the activity was widened to the sector of funerary art and stone carving systems through jet of sand.
Today the Group consists in Péle (Graves and bronzes), Fotocerâmicas do Atlantico (photo ceramics), Magic Stone (Stone carving systems), and Mundiblock (granite blocks); its goal is to be the reference point for Marble-Cutters. In the stone market, as in every sector, when it comes to choosing the right offer, the quality of the product and of the service plays an increasingly important role.
Our goals: an excellent price/quality relation, an unmatchable post-sale service, and paying special attention to the transparency, integrity and guaranty towards the client. Due to the commercial strategy change, the year of 2003 stands as a turning point towards the company growth. Today the Group is proud of the advance obtained, of the levels it has reached, but above all by the certificate of excellence that only its clients can award.
The Pelé Group is made of all those who work every day with humility, integrity and the cooperation spirit to reach success.
