The action of CENFIM in Sines, together with the Sector Associations, relates to a process of decentralization and regional intervention in areas of heavy deployment of Metallurgical Industry, Electromechanical and metal-mechanic in order to support the needs of local industries, using the qualification human resources available there.

The new Core CENFIM in SINES, located in Light Industrial Zone No. 2 is in full swing. The respective area workshop is housed in temporary premises provided by the Municipality of Sines, and the remaining infrastructure is installed in the modern building Sines Tecnopólo. The installation procedure is the result of a series of efforts that highlight the unavoidable intervention of the Presidency of the City Council, represented by its President, support services, as well as by the direction Sines Tecnopólo without the action of which would be impossible put into full operation the machine's training CENFIM in such a short space of time, responding to the training needs expressed by companies.
