Group SACIA, aware that, only through the quality of the services provided would be able to maintain a continuous and sustained growth, created from the start, an infrastructure dedicated to services in the quality control.

O LMAM (Laboratory of Metrology and Analysis of Materials) equipped itself so as to be able to provide services to the other members of the group in the areas of calibration, measurement, and material analysis of the equipment and products of the group.
Taken the first step, the group immediately saw the possibility that LMAM provided.
Thus, in a pioneering decision, LMAM initiated the process of certification in dimensional metrology.
The first private sector entity to do so in Portugal.


In 1994, LMAM was finally competency recognized by the issue of the Certificate of Quality N. 94/L114, issued by the Portuguese Institute IPQ (Instituto Português da Qualidade).
In 2001, LMAM was transferred to it’s current location and base of operations for Group SACIA, Agueda.
In the same year, a request was made to IPQ to certify LMAM capabilities in the areas resistance to saline mist, and measurement of coating thickness. Process which was concluded in 2002 with the Certificate 02/L.320(current L0250-IPAC), affirming itself, more and more, as reference marker in it’s areas of expertise.
It further add to all this, by certifying itself to the standard ISO/IEC 17025 for measurements and calibration.


We provide a wide range of services in the way of quality control (measurements and calibration) for which we are certified by Portuguese Institutions.
