It was in the 50's, in Porto, that José Martins Barbosa started the manufacture of innovating machinery and tools in the jewelry industry. After launching his own creation of jewelry, José went to Germany in search of inspiration. Restless and revolutionary, he eventually developed new production techniques, becoming the first national manufacturer to do gold-plating in series.
In 1980, three of his seven children took over management of the company. Inheriting his father's know-how and entrepreneurial vision, Tiago Martins Barbosa decided to start his own company in 1998, TMB. Constant changes in the market led him to focus on the production of silver pieces for fashion brands and national wholesalers, a legacy that strengthens the identity of Portvs today.
Currently, this family´s history continues to evolve through the hands of the third generation with the contemporary vision of João and Tiago Barbosa. By monitoring world trends and harmonizing modernization of the sector with traditional knowledge, the two brothers respond to the needs of an increasingly versatile, demanding and complex market.
This Portuguese industry was the first to work 24 hours a day and is presently a reference in the goldsmithing sector in Portugal. In addition to international experience in retail and industry, this duo has a broad portfolio of clients, ensuring a successful business partnership.
