INOXPA RECEIVES "2013 NATIONAL AWARD FOR INNOVATION AND DESIGN"
Spain recognises the Banyoles-based company for the second time in four years for its business success model
INOXPA is leader in the manufacture of process components and fluid handling equipment in the food-processing, cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors.
In the last four years, the company has had its entrepreneurial achievements recognised with two prestigious accolades. In 2009, the Spanish Ministry of Industry bestowed INOXPA with the Prince Felipe Special Award for Business Competitiveness in the SMEs category, the company was also a finalist for the Prince Felipe Award for Business Excellence in the category of Internationalisation. This year, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness awarded the 2013 National Award for Innovation and Design in the Internationalisation category to both INOXPA and the transport infrastructure company, Ferrovial.
Сandi Granés, Managing Director of the company group, collected the prize in Valladolid on the 1st of July.
A key to INOXPA's success has been its strategy to act as a global company while maintaining its headquarters in Banyoles.
Under the current structure, INOXPA is divided into four complementary divisions:
- The management, coordination and logistical and technical assistance services are centred in Banyoles.
- The research and development of the process skids is carried out in France (pharmaceutical sector), Portugal and Spain (food-processing sector).
- The manufacture of components is carried out in India and China while skids are manufactured in Europe (France, Portugal and Spain).
- In all continents, there is an extensive sales network for the marketing of all products and services.
INOXPA constantly invests in adapting its products to approved guidelines which guarantee the quality and suitability of the products for use in the food-processing, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
In Banyoles, INOXPA is currently in the process of constructing a smart warehouse which will ensure the quick supply of all its components. The company is also developing a pilot plant aimed at providing added value to its skids, which are designed as solutions to particular food processes.
