From a small business, to one of the most renowned companies in its sector, with about 60 employees and an area of over 12000 square meters. As J.J.M. Esperança Lda has become one of the reference companies in the design and manufacture of equipment.


The company founder

The founder of the company, Mr. José Jorge Esperança, returns from France where he did his military service and set up a small workshop in the place of Lamarosa, municipality of Torres Novas, which is dedicated to the construction and assistance of agricultural utensils. As the years go by he begins to count on the help of his sons: José, João and Manuel.


Renamed company

Already with a larger dimension, he decides to set up a company with a new name, José Jorge Esperança & Filhos. At this stage and with the advent of agricultural tractors in Portugal, the manufacture of the first agricultural implements begins.


Founder’s withdrawal

With the founder’s withdrawal, the company’s name is now known, extending the product range to other sectors of activity. It is in this year that the manufacture of the first equipment for construction machinery and public works (industrial machinery) begins.


Move into new premises

Although Lamarosa’s facilities have increased over the years, they have become clearly insufficient, so it is decided, with the participation of the current management team, to acquire a 12,000 m2 space in the Tomar industrial area where it will be installed from January 2002.

Since then and with a significantly increased and improved production capacity, it has entered other sectors of activity starting, from 2005, to export at an ever increasing pace to several countries in the European Union and Africa.
