Today, the products manufactured by Taurus are exported to over 70 countries and have received dozens of awards in several of them in recognition of their high standard of quality and innovation, including in the United States, one of the world's most demanding markets.

Taurus is a people-safety oriented company. We supply products that are directly or indirectly found in everyday life. Our relationship with our customers hinges on confidence in product quality, and it is in this field that all our efforts are concentrated. Taurus has invested in an organizational restructuring program that has led to profound changes in our company management and a new organization chart. This is an important time of transition to a new cycle whose focus is to reclaim our company's basic principles by making them less complex, scale back, and achieve greater efficiency in our industrial processes and value chain.
