About usNovember 25, 2019 2022-08-30 10:11
With more than 60 years of experience, Gráfica Maiadouro, is a printing industry reference in today's national and international market.
More than 500 years after Gutenberg's invention, and 900 years after the invention of the world's first movable type technology created by Bi Sheng - even though Maiadouro invented nothing - Gutenberg's legacy, engraved in movable type made of metal, would gain a new life in 1960.
The acumen in bringing to Portugal the good that was already being done abroad, the courage to go further and the commitment to realise on paper what many only saw in dreams, helped Domingos de Oliveira, founder, to consolidate the name of this family company. With a very special presence in the cultural area, we offer unique solutions tailored to each client in the areas of prepress, press and postpress.
We are located in Grande Porto and in the heart of the city of Lisbon.
Headquartered in Maia - one of the most important industrial centres in the Greater Porto area - the premises boast a total of around 11 thousand square metres.

The path to acknowledgement is made as team
AND OUR MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!
Here, as in everything, teamwork is essential. With more than 70 people, between offices and factory, Maiadouro has seen people who started their professional life in the company and left it for retirement.
In Maiadouro, those who have knowledge, share it. Share it between departments, between hierarchies. It is as a team that the steps taken at risk become steadier. And the path is that of evolution, in the Graphic Arts and in Maiadouro.
We still try, we still make mistakes, we still look for the ideal. But we get it right more and more. Better and better. If there is a secret, it is this: teamwork, and our makes the difference!
