In 1925, two investors, Antoine Velge (Belgian industrialist) and Frederic Jacobs (banker in Antwerp) sought out Setúbal with the intention of building an Industrial and Logistics Complex there, and Herdade das Praias was acquired for this purpose.

The group SAPEC (Société Anonyme de Produits et Engrais) was founded in 1926, with the exploration of pyrite mines in the Alentejo region. Pyrites were transported from Minas do Lousal and phosphates from North Africa to Herdade das Praias, where factories producing sulfuric acid and chemical fertilizers were located.


In the 90s, legislation was published for industrial parks (Decree-Law no. 232/92 of 22 October) and in particular for the SAPEC bay Industrial Park (Ordinance no. 63/94 of 28 January), being the only industrial park with legislation dedicated.
