Losán's newest facility in Zamora, Spain, continues on schedule. | Losán's newest facility in Zamora, Spain, continues on schedule.
The works, developed by the construction company Grupo Herce, began in May 2018 and is proceeding as planned: foundation set, structures erected, press pit prepared... The machinery, from European suppliers such as Innergy or Biele, will be arriving at the end of this year. The goal is to start manufacturing plywood panels in the Spring of 2019.
The key is to locate in strategic areas to take advantage of local resources and hence the investment of 30M in the Castilla y León area. Thanks to Losán’s R & D, the boards will combine a poplar base with other national wood species. The estimated production will start with an annual capacity of 50,000 m3 that will be mostly destined to the export market for countries such as Holland, France, Germany, the United Kingdom or the United States.
This factory will be among the other 6 that Losán has in Spain (Aserpal, Losán Industries, Losan Boards, Losán Solid Wood, Pina S.A and Componentes Losán) as well as those of Holland, Romania, the United States and Chile.
