The 2018 award for business excellence has been given to Verallia’s plant in Zaragoza, Spain, and was handed over to Eulogio López, the plant manager, by the Aragon Institute for economic development (IAF).
2018 has been a major year for the Saragossa plant. Last June, it celebrated its fiftieth anniversary as well as the reconstruction of one of its two furnaces.
In Spain, Verallia is a major player on its domestic market with six glass plants (Azuqueca, Burgos, Montblanc, Zaragoza, Seville and Telde) spread over the whole country. The Zaragoza plant is highly specialized on the beer market. The Spanish plants also produce for the still and sparkling wines, spirits, food and non-alcoholic beverages (NAB) markets.
