FONTANAR (Guadalajara), 14th June 2021
On 14th June, the President of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, inaugurated the new MORCHEM plant in Fontanar.
This event was initially scheduled for 16th March 2020, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 state of alarm situation.
The event was held with a reduced circle of people respecting the allowed capacity limits at the time and was attended by several authorities from Castilla la Mancha: In addition to the President of the regional government of Castilla-La Mancha, we were joined by Ms. Patricia Franco, Councillor of Economy, Business and Employment of the regional government of Castilla-La Mancha, Mr. José Luis Vega Pérez, President of the Provincial Council of Guadalajara and Mr. Víctor San Vidal, Mayor President of the City Council of Fontanar.
The new plant, built in a record time of 16 months on a 30,000 m2 plot, and after an investment of more than 25 million Euros, is focused on the manufacture of high volume polyurethane and polyester adhesives and is one of the most innovative factories in Europe, with fully automated facilities.
Despite the pandemic situation we decided to start up in April 2020. The good coordination and dedication of the teams of Fontanar and Las Franquesas allowed us to successfully start up the new plant little by little.
We would like to thank the regional government of Castilla La Mancha for all the support received for this project, as well as the City Council and the people of Fontanar for their warm welcome and hospitality.
