We are an integrated part of ALTEX store network strategy development, having the skills and knowledge for this type of retail project.

Another key feature that Cometex has been implementing in its developments is green energy and photovoltaic panels on rooftops for retail projects:
“Also, the green energy area will no longer be just a trend, it is a new way of doing things.
