Operating since 1993 as an installer and later as an importer and exporter of home and industrial air conditioning systems, Chatron was extending its market and its scope of work throughout the country. In 2004 important decisions were taken with repercussions in the medium and long term:
A new industrial plant was built in order to optimize the manufacturing and development. Allowing the manufacture of new energy efficient equipment in the fields of air conditioning, ventilation and transmission of natural lighting and LED lighting, using photovoltaics for their own consumption.
The Chatron currently has a total area of approximately 5,000 m2, between offices, laboratory, development, production and warehouse, located in the Industrial Zone of Rossio in Vale de Cambra, one of the most industrialized regions of Portugal (about 40 Km south of porto).
Products marketed By Chatron are developed and manufactured mostly in this new and modern manufacturing unit.
The main products currently manufactured are:
Solar tube - natural lighting (Versions: domestic, commercial and industrial, up to 1,000 mm in diameter)

Chatron has all kinds of machinery for metalworking and for thermo-forming acrylic and polycarbonate high-impact, being able to perform all steps of its production without resorting to outsourcing abroad.
We also have line assembly and packaging of the final products in order to prepare them for shipment.
The product quality is the organization of the whole structure of the Company.
For this to happen Chatron is endowed of a quality system covering all sectors, ranging from specific technical training of employees to production, assembly and packaging of the final product.
Measures and tests and all products or sampling thereof (depending on product), before packing entry.
