Ms. Susana Díaz visited on 31st March Acerinox Europa facilities in Los Barrios (Cadiz, Spain) arousing great interest because this visit is the first one of a President of the Regional Government of Andalusia (Junta de Andalucía) to this factory.
Just a few companies have bet on Andalusia as much as Acerinox. Since the beginning of the crisis in 2008, Acerinox has invested in the factory 231 million euros, increasing strongly their productivity and keeping as one of the most competitive factory in Europe in its sector. For this purpose, Acerinox invested during 2013 another 6 million euros in R&D&I projects for internal development, in awards for quality and Excellence Plan, as well as in collaborations with Universities and Research Centers. In 2014 Acerinox will invest more than 10 million euros, begining with a new polishing line.
Acerinox, as the second export company of Andalusia with 740 million euros in 2013, expressed its gratitude to the President for her visit and offered to change the registered office of Acerinox Europe from Madrid to the town of Los Barrios in Cadiz, in recognition of the excellent work done by its employees and its perfect integration in the region, being an example of sustainability after 44 years of close living together.
