Why the name ConMoto?

The success of a project comes down to approach. Getting things moving, pragmatism on the ground, and seeing projects through: these have been ConMoto hallmarks – for thirty years. In musical terms, ‘con moto’ means ‘with movement’. That’s why we called ourselves ConMoto: it’s how we work as a company – always in motion and always moving things forward to achieve our goals.
