About us

With 45 years of experience in the conception, production, and distribution of generator sets, we bring energy to the entire world.

Grupel started its activity, in 1976, producing and selling a wide range of electrical generators (open or soundproofed), with powers from 3 to 3500kVA, equipped with the best quality components from internationally renowned brands, in addition to the components of our own brand, Grupel.

We believe that access to power can enhance the development of regions. We know, however, that this supply is not uniform worldwide and that the needs to ensure its supply are distinct from region to region.

For this reason, our team works daily to create tailor-made solutions, according to each geographical reality and application objective, be it residential to operate only in case of power supply failure or to operate continuously in power plants, business or industrial units.

To meet this objective, we have more than 24,000m2 dedicated to the manufacture of generator sets, being the largest production unit of this type of equipment in Portugal. We are a renowned brand in the sector, and we work incessantly for the satisfaction of our customers. In 2021, we were distinguished by Portuguese consumers with the Five Stars Award (Prémio Cinco Estrelas), for the fitth consecutive year.

But it is not only in Portugal that we are recognized. Currently, about 80% of the company’s turnover is due to our international presence, in more than 70 countries. With our customers and partners, we take our Energy further and further.
