Arburg Expands Spanish Subsidiary
On 1 July 2015, the Spanish subsidiary of Arburg GmbH + Co KG in Montcada i Reixac celebrated the official opening of its new home in Barcelona in the presence of Arburg Managing Partner Renate Keinath. This event and the open house on the following day attracted over 110 guests from Spain and Portugal.
In her speech, Renate Keinath emphasized: "The new subsidiary building is evidence of the important role our Spanish subsidiary has played for us over more than 25 years. The new building confirms that we made the right choice decades ago and that our continuous investments in the Iberian market have paid off."
The new building in Montcada i Reixac will ensure that Arburg can continue to offer comprehensive support to customers in Catalonia, the largest and most important market in Spain, long into the future. With an area of 800 m2 , it offers significantly more space for machines and turnkey systems, spare parts, practical tests and intensive training. The show room measures 320 m2 and has enough room for up to five Allrounder injection molding machines or production cells, as the automation sector is set for further expansion. In addition a freeformer, which was presented live for the first time in Spain and which is now also available for purchase in the country, is available for testing.
With the Arburg Technology Centers in Madrid and Barcelona, the company is extremely well positioned in Spain. The subsidiary in Sabadell (Barcelona) was founded in 1989. In 1997, Arburg S.A. additionally took on the task of supporting the customers in Portugal. In 1998, the subsidiary's headquarters was then moved to Arganda del Rey (Madrid), as the central location of the Spanish capital made it easier to support the entire region. Today, the Arburg team in Spain numbers 27 employees, including 14 service technicians.
