Renishaw Ibérica, S.A.U., Spain, Renishaw’s subsidiary for the Spanish and Portuguese markets, has relocated to a new facility in Barcelona. This follows a previous move in 2012. According to Renishaw, the company has seen rapid growth since its last move, and now requires a larger area to provide sufficient support to its customers. The new facilities are located outside Barcelona in the municipality of Gavà, roughly 8 km from El Prat international airport.
The move will include the launch of a new Additive Manufacturing lab, which will include material development facilities and post-processing equipment for additively manufactured metallic parts, and a showroom dedicated to all of Renishaw’s major product lines in manufacturing process control and healthcare. The new facility offers Renishaw Ibérica three times the floor space of its previous building, which the company states will allow for an improved service to its customer base and provide the capacity for future expansion.
“Our commitment to providing first class customer support to the Iberian markets is part of a wider strategy across the Renishaw Group for the continued investment in new product development, plant and equipment, and facilities,” stated Víctor Escobar, Managing Director of Renishaw Ibérica. “We are continuing our strategy to invest for the long-term, by expanding our in-house capacities and increasing customer service activities.”
Overall, the Renishaw Group currently has more than 70 offices in 35 countries, with over 4,300 employees worldwide.
