STRATEGIC VISION TO TRANSFORM OBSTACLES IN INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
Intertechne´s founders left us as a legacy the importance of determination to overcome challenges and commitment to the delivery of innovative technical solutions.

We have a very special legacy left by the founding partners that needs to be preserved. Perhaps the biggest one is the importance of people in an engineering company like ours and this is certainly not going to change in my management. People will continue to be our driving force, but we also need to permanently reinvent ourselves in our management processes and in the technologies used, because that is the only way we will make Intertechne an increasingly competitive company in the global engineering scenario”, comments Akashi.
Among the objectives of Paulo Akashi are the continuous increase in the recognition of Intertechne as a company of excellence in consultative engineering and investments in cutting-edge technologies in order to increase the performance of the solutions developed.
