Escubedo wishes you a Merry Christmas

Escubedo corporate headquarters enlargement

Escubedo's facilities in Spain will be 7,000 m² larger when the enlargement works are complete.

Responding to current market demand, Escubedo has launched a project to expand its corporate headquarters located in Riudellots de la Creu (Girona). With the purchase of more than 50,000 m² of land adjacent to the current facilities and once approved by the Girona Territorial Planning Service and the City Council, work on extending the current facilities began in September.

The project, which will expand Escubedo's corporate headquarters by more than 7,000 m², involves building three main blocks: some new corporate offices of 1,000 m², a 3,000 m² warehouse for storage and another 3,000 m² warehouse home to the engineering department and the mould and die manufacturing areas and plastic injection sites.

In parallel to this project, a series of development projects will be carried out, expected to be completed by the end of 2018.


Escubedo adapts to the new IATF regulations in quality management


The ISO/TS 16949: 2016 will replace the current ISO/TS16949: 2009 by 2018.

Escubedo is preparing to make a new leap forward in its quality systems. Having achieved ISO 9002 and ISO/TS16949: 2009 certifications, the norm for quality management in the automotive industry in force to date, we are working to adapt to the new standard published by the IATF (International Automotive Task Force), ISO/TS 16949:2016.

Both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and the suppliers of the automotive industry are required to apply this standard in their quality management systems before September 14, 2018.

Escubedo has already planned the transition audit with the certifying entity in order to meet the deadlines set by the IATF.

How is Escubedo doing during the political situation in Catalonia?

Escubedo SAU's activity is not being affected by the political situation in Catalonia and the company is operating with total normality and at full capacity.

As a company located in Catalonia, Escubedo can not turn a blind eye to the political situation that our country is undergoing and the international repercussions it is having, so we think it important to publish a message of reassurance to our customers and suppliers.

Despite the turbulent political situation in Catalonia and the news appearing in the various national and international media outlets, Escubedo SAU has implemented the necessary contingency plans and actions so that these unusual circumstances have no influence on our daily live as a company. We shall therefore make the most of this communication channel to send this message of reassurance to our customers and suppliers.
