In a first phase, Maquiclick.com expects to incorporate near of 600 companies, although it is foreseen that the figure increase of important form during 2013.
Maquiclick.com It covers like this an important empty in the Spanish industry, and especially in the sector of the industrial machinery. “We help so much to the big companies as to others that have some more modest dimensions”, sustains Argemí. “In fact, of the 221.000 industrial companies that there is at present in Spain, 186.800 (84%) have less than 10 employees”, adds.
