The Alibérico group will have a second factory in Alicante. The company chaired by Clemente González Soler, which is the largest European family company of semi-processed aluminum, has bought Repsol some land located on Avenida de Elche – adjacent to the facilities it already has in this area – to build a second warehouse of more than 7,500 square meters, as reported by the company itself this Friday.

The company has the headquarters of its subsidiary in Alicante RedBond Composites, created in 2012, and dedicated to the production of aluminum panels for digital printing. In 2018, it installed a second line with its own technology to expand its production capacity and diversify its range of products, allowing it to offer the largest panels on the market in terms of dimensions.

The company manufactures products specially designed for digital printing and corporate image and its quality is recognized and approved by the main manufacturers of printers worldwide, according to the group. The acquisition of these lands and the construction of the new factory reflect the growth that this company has had, investing in industry and innovation and reaching agreements with the most important European distributors in the sector. His clear international vocation leads him to export more than 95% of its production.

On the land acquired from Repsol, Alibérico will build in 2021 a new plant, adjacent to its current facilities, which will consist of an industrial building of 7,500 meters squares specially enabled to reach the American markets, especially to United States , where the group already has a presence through its subsidiary Alucoil North America, owner of an 81,000-square-meter plant in South Carolina.

The design and construction of this new plant will be based on a efficient building, sustainable and with a high level of digitization.

Alibérico is the first Spanish private group and the first European family group manufacturer of semi-transformed aluminum products. Currently, they make up the conglomerate 35 companies and 17 factories on four continents. The company employs 1,200 workers and its products are sold in more than 80 countries. The firm operates in the container and packaging, building, surface treatment, transport, industry and renewable energy sectors with technologically highly advanced aluminum products and with premium brands recognized as leaders throughout the world.

Clemente González Soler is closely linked to Alicante since he began his career at the then Endasa aluminum plant, which later became Alcoa and now belongs to the Aludium group. In fact, González Soler was one of the candidates to buy the factory when the US multinational sold it, along with the Amorebieta and the French Castelsarrasin plants.
