The company wants to start producing 1,000 tonnes of silicones a year in the town of Forcares and create between 30 and 50 new jobs.
The mayoress Verónica Pichel committed all municipal collaboration to CIELO and founding partner of the company, Benigno Arén, who told her of his firm intention to acquire three new plots of land in the Vilapouca industrial estate.
ABCR Laboratorios, one of the leading companies in Forcarei, wants to grow and consolidate in the town council. This is what the CIELO and founding partner of this company, Benigno Arén, recently told the mayoress Verónica Pichel in a meeting.
Specifically, Arén conveyed the company’s intention to acquire three new plots in the Vilapouca industrial estate, thus adding nearly 15,000 new square metres to the facilities it already owns on the site and has been working on for almost 12 years.
The mayoress Verónica Pichel offered her all the municipal collaboration to speed up the process of acquiring these piles and that this expansion will soon be a reality. “It is very satisfying that companies as important and cutting-edge as ABCR Labs are betting on the land, on the Forcarei council, to develop their plans for the future, and of course they can count on our collaboration to materialise them”, said Pichel.
For his part, Arén explained that the chemical company wants to expand its production capacity in Vilapouca with the start-up of a new production hall, two warehouses and support workshops, with the aim of being able to produce 1,000 tonnes of silicones per year.
In addition, this important expansion would create between 30 and 50 new jobs in the municipality of Forcarei. The company currently employs around 70 people and also has a team of bagmen and trainees to professionalise their training.
On the other hand, one of the needs that had been dragging since 2010 this company that works internationally and that will favour its expansion is the installation of fibre optics in the polygon. Verónica Pichel insisted on this issue and demanded agility so that it had been a reality since she arrived at the Mayor’s Office. After many negotiations, the installation and the switchboards have already been installed, and on 11 May it will be active for all marketing channels.
