Industrias Guerra boosts its international expansion with the opening of a new industrial plant in Silleda (Spain), spanning 2,500 square meters. The new facilities will enable the company to have a digitized logistics warehouse that will function as a supply storage plant for the assembly line. The project represents an investment of 1.25 million euros and is expected to contribute to the creation of 11 new jobs.
The new industrial warehouse in Silleda is a significant push for Industrias Guerra’ growth plans. The company specializes in the design, manufacturing, and assembly of hydraulic cranes and machinery for the marine sector and the forestry industry.
The project has received a grant of 151,647.72 euros from the Spanish Ministry of Finance and Public Function, which accounts for 11% of the total investment. This grant is part of an initiative to provide regional incentives for correcting inter-territorial economic imbalances and promoting investment projects.
Industrias Guerra has chosen a policy of local hiring for the construction of its new plant. The entire project has been carried out by Galician companies, all within a radius of less than 50 kilometres from its headquarters in Vila de Cruces (Pontevedra).
In the midst of expanding into Asian and American markets, the company’s goal is to increase its production capacity by 25 percent once the new facilities are fully operational in September.
“From Vila de Cruces, we want to compete with major multinational corporations worldwide,” explains Victor Pintos, the CEO of Industrias Guerra. “To achieve that, we prioritize innovation and continuous improvement of our products. This new plant will help us reduce delivery times and enhance our competitiveness, productivity, and flexibility. It’s another step towards growth and reaching more countries.”
Currently, Industrias Guerra exports 65 percent of its products, with a presence in five continents and 40 countries, including Argentina, Chile, France, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Portugal, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States.
