A small studio that developed into a major group of professional service companies.
The Group emerged from a small engineering and architectural studio belonging to the CEO and founder in the early 1980s when he began to receive business offers from private companies and public institutions. The studio intended to offer added value by providing consultancy services and executing complex projects. What were initially one-off clients began to seek these services on a more regular basis, which led to a professional overload, with the studio going as far as to transfer professionals from its own team to clients so as to cater for their rising demands.
So it was that in 1989 the first company in the group was born to specialize in outsourcing professional services - a true revolution in the 1980s. GrupoSepro has not stopped growing ever since, gradually diversifying its range of quality professional services.
