THE RE-INDUSTRIALISATION IS THE KEY

On March 28, Folgarolas Textil celebrated its 71st anniversary as a fabric for fashion manufacturer and  this day was designated to inaugurate the facilities of its new manufacturing plant located beside its headquarters in Terrassa.

In an act that was attended by multiple authorities such as the Minister of Business and Labor of the Generalitat de Catalunya or the city mayor, the long history of the company was reviewed, in which the great-grandson of the founder, Pepe García with Mireia Cazador now together take over.

In his inaugural speech, the CEO of Folgarolas Textil, S.A, Pepe García i Balagué, pointed out that the decision to reindustrialize the company was not a nostalgic matter, but rather a strategic decision in an increasingly globalized world where to combat climate change, proximity will be the key.

Mireia Cazador, by her side, highlighted the the sector needs and stated that it’s necessary to strengthen the local industrial network, as well as to promote new professionals training and the more sustainable products promotion to preserve the future for the sector companies.

The act ended with the commemorative plaque unveiling by the Minister of The Generalitat de Catalunya Mr. Roger Torrent, and cutting the inaugural ribbon that gave way to a symbolic start of the looms whose sound merged with the surprising performance by the pianist Laia Tort. The cocktail party at the main headquarters put an end to a day in which a new stage is opening for this company.
