SeproTec Multilingual Solutions has established its position as the leading company in the sector in Spain.
In 2008, the global economic situation was seriously affected by the deep financial crisis, which was a major blow to the international economy. Companies of all sizes all over the world found themselves embroiled in a situation of unprecedented difficulty.
Against this complicated and uncertain background, SeproTec Multilingual Solutions has maintained its leadership through the robustness of its business model, based on a continuous search for excellence through our management processes; this has led to us being not just leaders in the sector in Spain but also being recognised as one of the 30 best companies in the sector in the world according to the prestigious consultancy Common Sense Advisory.
In this difficult employment situation in Spain, with one of the highest unemployment rates in Europe, SeproTec Multilingual Solutions has maintained its commitment to society, increasing its workforce and adding value by attracting talent. As a result, we have expanded from offering 28 languages just four years ago, to today having the largest number of languages in our portfolio.
Our turnover has likewise performed excellently and consistently, with an average growth rate of 44% in the last three years. These figures demonstrate - even at times of great uncertainty - the robustness of our project with its vision for the future.
I would like to express to you my confidence in the business model for the company over which I have the pleasure to preside, and to state my firm intention to continue improving it on a day-to-day basis by investing in R&D, which in 2009 accounted for 10% of our turnover, and by selecting and training the best people in the field. We are committed to continuous improvement in our management processes and it is our intention to develop them and adapt them to the new needs of our clients. In order to offer the best possible service to our clients, we are involved in a process of domestic and international expansion in which we have a network of ten domestic offices and five international branches.
And I would just like to finish by recognising the commitment of the exceptional team and managers I have the pleasure to work with; and reiterating my certainty that SeproTec Multilingual Solutions will emerge from the current difficult global situation taking advantage of the opportunities which an ever more globalised society offers us.
