The beginning
Heliflex Tubos e Mangueiras, S.A. was born from the necessity of a new hose to suck water from wells.

During an exhibition about agriculture in Paris, a partner of the enterprise Henrique Vieira e Filhos, Lda (Henrique Simões Vieira) met the A.G. Petzetakis Group S.A. (Greek) which had the wished hose. The multinational wanted to have a representative in Portugal. The seed was scattered for growth. On September 1, 1969, the Heliflex Portuguesa (Tubos Flexíveis), Lda was born (the current Heliflex Tubos e Mangueiras, S.A.).

However, during a congress in Athens, which the former administrators Acácio Vieira and Anselmo Santos took part in, a new idea was born: the creation of a productive unit. It became a reality on January 1, 1971. It was the most prominent moment of this reliable and ambitious project.

From that moment on, Heliflex has progressively introduced several types of products in the market. These products are always characterized by quality which is Heliflex's way of being, assuring its leadership in the market.
