The company receives the recognition a few days after being awarded the National Environment Award

Cales de Pachs is lucky again. The Pacs del Penedès company, dedicated to the manufacture of lime, has received a new recognition, this time from the Federació Empresarial del Gran Penedès (FEGP).

During the Company Night, which was held on Thursday at the Juvé i Camps winery in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, the company from Penedes was awarded the FEGP Prize for Innovation, which endorses the commitment that Cales de Pachs has made in recent years to develop innovative products. The recognition was collected by Esteve Gaona, a member of the optional management of the company, who was accompanied during the event by the entire management team of Cales de Pachs.

The award ceremony was attended by the Minister of Business, Roger Torrent, who reaffirmed the importance of industry in Catalonia. “We want to reach 25% of the weight of the industry in our country. It seems to us an ambitious and possible goal that will allow us to generate wealth with a modern and green industry”, said Torrent.

Innovation to guarantee the future

To prevail over the competition of multinational companies, the company, founded in 1967 by the Grané family, has distinguished itself from the manufacture of common products (commodities) and has given lime new uses, basically with environmental applications. Treating water for human consumption and industrial and incinerator fumes, disinfecting waste water or sanitizing sewage sludge are some of the uses of the lime produced in Cales de Pachs.

The FEGP’s recognition of Cales de Pachs’ innovative approach comes just a few days after the company was awarded the National Environment Award by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge.

In this case, the Spanish government has highlighted the work done by the Pacs del Penedès company “in the development and technological innovation in the search for sustainability”.
