Manufacturing company IMCO is poised to become one of the global giants of the 21st century. It started its rise to world prominence in the late 1890s and early 1900s through its strong corporate branding, global product strategies and progressive management principles. Today IMCO is a multi-billion ecu company with interests throughout the world. It has a strong presence in many countries including Spain, Czechoslovakia and Ukraine.
