Escunews - September 2019 Edition

Escubedo's new facilities, in operation


In Escubedo we are proud to share with our customers and suppliers the success of the expansion of the two new industrial buildings.

These plants have 3,000 sqm each and are already operational: one as an automated warehouse and the other for plastic injection and the section of moulds and dies. The two new plants add to our 1,000 sqm office building.

We firmly believe that this important expansion will act as a catalyst for new businesses in connection systems and components for the automotive, household appliances and electronics markets, as other changes did in the past: from the small workshop in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, to the offices in Barcelona, and from there to the facilities in Riudellots de la Creu (Girona), which we are now expanding with the new Escubedo 2 and Escubedo 3 plants.

If you are a customer, you can contact Escubedo’s Sales Department to coordinate a visit when appropriate.
