History and Presentation:

Today exports account for 70% of the business, selling to more than 35 countries, through a strong network of agents and distributors as well as local subsidiaries in Italy and Argentina.

In 2001 the company centralized its activity in Castellbisbal, on a 14,000 m2 land at 15 km from Barcelona, where a modern plant was built gathering together the offices, the production line, the laboratory and the warehouses.
