The new facilities allow us to position ourselves as the most prepared business group in the market, thanks to our commitment to innovation, sustainability, the latest technological advances and digital printing. We offer the maximum customization to achieve experiential packaging that adds value to the product.

We are committed to ethics, social and environmental responsibility, for this reason in 2016 we decided to implement the economic model of the Common Good, realizing our first Balance of the Common Good (BBC).
In the next three months we will make a second balance on the year 2018. As a first action we have reviewed the achievement of the objectives established in the previous improvement plan and we have written a report on the results achieved to date.
This new balance will use the new version of the matrix 5.0 proposed by the EBC and will establish a new improvement plan adapted to the current conditions.

In 2018 the carton industry in Spain consolidated its growth, achieving a total turnover (direct + indirect) of 5,167 million euros and employing more than 23,600 workers to produce a total of 5,286 million m2. Thus, Spain is the fourth European country with the highest manufacturing volume, behind Germany, Italy and France. Data published by the Association of Manufacturers of Corrugated Cardboard (AFCO) in its annual report of 2018.

Continuing with our policy of respect for the environment, we are working on the project “Zero Discharge”, by means of which it is intended to reduce and reuse water with the installation of an ultrafiltration plant until reaching zero discharge. For the moment and thanks to an improvement plan, proposed by the different departments involved, we have managed to reduce the consumption of water used in the manufacturing process by 47%.
