Mas lays cornerstone of new Sener corporate headquarters in Catalonia
This multinational engineering and technology group, which has operated in Catalonia for 19 years, will invest €25 millions in Parc de l'Alba.
Multinational engineering and technology group Sener will build their new corporate headquarters in Catalonia, occupying 15,000 square meters in Parc de l’Alba, Cerdanyola del Vallès (Barcelona). President of the Government of Catalonia Artur Mas presided over the event to lay the cornerstone of this building yesterday afternoon.
Total investment for this project is estimated at €25 millions. The new building will house Sener’s engineering and construction department as well as the company NTE-Sener, which employs more than 350 qualified engineers and technicians who carry out high-technology projects around the world. This new facility, designed by an internal architecture team, will be located on a plot belonging to the Catalan Land Institute (Incasòl), adjudicated to Sener through a tender for a 50-year surface rights lease with a purchase option.
The President of the Government of Catalonia congratulated the company for their decision to establish their Catalonia headquarters in Parc de l’Alba and highlighted that “in these difficult times, Sener is committed to three fundamental ideas: invest, innovate and internationalize."
President of Sener Jorge Sendagorta highlighted the company’s growth in recent years, "We established operations in Catalonia in 1993, convinced that this is a land of opportunity linked to innovation and technology. Since then, the Catalonia division has grown in terms of projects and talent. Today we can say that from Catalonia we not only export technology but also an efficiency model.”
CEO of Sener Catalonia Gabriel Alarcón explained that “the new building symbolizes our confidence in the future and is designed to be able to tackle large-scale projects in health, space and astronomy.” These projects include E-ELT M5FU in science and astronomy, Autoplak in biomedical technology, Research Systems for Muscular Atrophy and Exercise (MARES), designing ships from the Foran system, participating in the LISA Pathfinder scientific mission with the European Space Agency and in the Alba synchrotron radiation facility.
