    In Visabeira Indústria, it is important to highlight Vista Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro as brands with huge global recognition, which increased their turnover and their share in foreign markets. It should also be noted that Vista Alegre, Ambitermo and Pinewells represent a good part of the sub-holding’s turnover, with 57.4%, 13.8% and 10.5%, respectively.
