With over 35 years of experience, GRUPO TAGAR’s history gathers decades of experience, challenges and achieved goals.
Our story begins in the 80’s when Mr. Ilídio Tavares decides to emigrate to Venezuela. Ambitious and with great business insights, he created the company Montajes Tagar, which, in two decades, reached an exponential growth. He was responsible for all the biggest works with great national importance such as the Caracas Metro.
In 1999, he decided to return to Portugal, and a year later, at the turn of the millennium, the company EUROTAGAR was born, it started to operate tower cranes and, subsequently, mobile cranes. All this business and growth dynamics allowed EUROTAGAR to participate in the construction of the vast Portuguese road system, consolidating itself as a reference in its sector of activity.
Later, in the construction crisis midst in the construction and public construction sector, determined to bet on the difference and always looking to the future, he decided to specialize his activity in the wind sector, which implied a bold decision: the acquisition of his first large mobile crane, LTM 11200, putting itself a step ahead of competition.
In this core-business, the company was responsible for the construction of almost all major wind farms in Portugal, which gave it the notoriety necessary for expansion to European markets.
GRUPO TAGAR’s is present in over 10 countries worldwide, in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
