In 1994 the Group acquired Puleva’s nutrition division in Granada. They recently extended the plant to increase its productive capacity and thus provide a better response to the growing demands of the world market for nutritional products. They also have an R&D department that is made up entirely of local staff, from where they launch onto the market innovative ingredients processed with technologies for the manufacturing of dietary products.
The Group has three development and assembly plants in Andalusia, employing more than 2,000 people and participating in relevant international projects. The plant located in the Bay of Cádiz Technology Park is noteworthy because of the technology used in the manufacture of carbon-fibre structures and components. The San Pablo plant in Seville carries out assembly and final equipping activities for military aircraft and the A400M Assembly Plant in Seville is where final assembly, flight testing and delivery of the A400M aircraft is carried out.
In the year 2000 they acquired the Cruzcampo factory and, since then, their growth has been continuous, placing Cruzcampo amongst the most important beer brands on a national scale and providing it with a greater international presence. The new plant in Seville represented the consolidation of the Group’s commitment to Andalusia, which is demonstrated by the implementation of the most modern factory in Europe with the highest rate of production that has generated more than 2,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Recently installed in the Andalusia Technology Park in Málaga, they have created a centre that specialises in the provision and delivery of consulting services for the Spanish market generating around 400 qualified jobs. From this centre they are also carrying out research, development and innovation projects.
In 2008 they inaugurated a new factory for thermosolar heat-capturing tubes using the latest technology. This investment demonstrates the company’s commitment to the sector and, through the development of technology for the generation of energy from solar radiation concentrated through cylinders or parabolic dishes, provides a boost for technological development and innovation in the region of Andalusia.
Set up in Jaén in 1967, the company has two production plants, one for headlights and the other for side-lights and indicators. They employ more than 1,300 fixed workers and almost 200 on a part-time basis. The company is noteworthy because of the trajectory of sustained growth that ranges from the implementation of the first automatic module for the manufacture of heat-treated plastic reflectors to the launch of new illumination systems.
