Their knowledge about the needs of oil companies and their lack of suppliers opened up a business opportunity, and they created Consórcio Português Intercontinental S.A., which soon adopted the brand name CPI, and later, MAKEEN Gas Equipment Portugal. Back then, they focused on the supply of components for liquid or gaseous networks with special emphasis on combustible products and industrial gases.
After becoming part of the Kosan Crisplant Group in 2008 and its subsequent name change to CPI, its primary focus has been on tailor-made equipment skids (compressors, pumps, emergency skids, etc.). in 2022, CPI changed its name to MAKEEN Gas Equipment Portugal.
As part of MAKEEN Gas Equipment, the team manages a distribution centre in Portugal for quick delivery to clients in more than 20 countries. MAKEEN Gas Equipment Portugal mainly covers Africa, Southern Europe, South America and parts of the Middle East.
