The delegation of Gondomar of INCM’s Assay Office has new facilities since June 22, being located in the Goldpark Technology Park of this county, where the goldsmith industry has greater expression at national level.
The Gondomar delegation now offers exceptional conditions of service to its customers and partners. In terms of a more modern offer to the sector, the most relevant news is the availability of a new laser marking equipment, which is essential for greater efficiency and speed of service.
The new Gondomar Assay Office provides greater security, better adjusted to the requirements raised by COVID-19, in order to preserve the health and well-being of its workers and users, with a service in reserved space, an increase in the number of service centres allowing to reduce waiting times and to provide common areas of exclusive and free use, as well as parking, among other novelties.
As regards scheduling, the new SMS or Internet ticket system, already implemented with success, will also be available at these facilities.
The control and marking of precious metal artifacts is regarded as the oldest form of consumer protection. In Portugal, the certification system of precious metals gives INCM’s Assay Offices the enormous responsibility of verifying the legal touch (permilage of precious metal contained in an alloy) and of applying the respective contrast, thereby ensuring consumer confidence when purchasing precious metals and providing for fair competition between operators in the sector.
The choice of GoldPark is a strong and decisive commitment by INCM to invest in a modern, innovative Assay Office, integrated in an ecosystem of shared values, concepts and synergies, in a sector that is becoming increasingly creative and entrepreneurial.
Our best wishes to all for great success and good work!
Thank you also to all the teams that made this inauguration possible.
