About us
Welcome to the Mecwide Group.

To be a part of the Mecwide group is to have the opportunity of belonging to an international team where employees are valued and where there is a strong focus on training.
Thanks to our ambition, we exceed barriers and the dream of internationalization that seemed distant became real.
I am certain that this achievement is largely due to our ability to create a culture that continuously demands competence and excellence, and to the way we operate in the market. We are dynamic yet always committed to the values that got us here; we act with moderation, simplicity and above all, transparency.

Set out on this discovery. Get to know the Mecwide Group.

Founder and CEO
Carlos Palhares



The Mecwide values are the foundation on which the recognition of our outlook is based. Our bearing - how we operate.

They are what defines the group and how the group wishes to define itself.



In always wanting more. Going further and developing increasingly better and tailored products and services for our customers.


We put everything we have into what we do.


Our desire for achievement drives us to surpass goals and achieve results towards the main objective: to be a worldwide reference.


Each day is a new opportunity to develop skills. To be more professional.


Act in a responsible, sustainable and evolutionary manner.
