Did you know?
Spain is known for its history, art, bullfights, flamenco, beaches and many hours of sunshine a year, however, Spain is much more. It has long been one of the cultural centers of Europe and its cities are home to monuments of exceptional historical and artistic value. The ancient peninsula offers extraordinary natural beauty, too.
Sapa’s aluminium extrusion business area has nearly 500 employees in Spain, in six locations. The company has extrusion plants in Navarra, Miranda de Ebro, Pinto, La Roca del Vallés and La Selva del Camp, and it operates an anodizing and coating plant in Santa Oliva.
Within aluminium building systems, Sapa has commercial offices in Barcelona and Madrid, marketing the Technal and Wicona brands. Its central buffer and production (painting, wood and thermal break) facilities are located in Miranda.

We believe our strengths in Spain are:
The industrial set-up in Miranda is a competitive advantage for Sapa’s building systems organization. Under one roof, the company has extrusion, thermal break and painting activities as well as its central buffer. This shortens the delivery time to customers and is cost-effective.
In addition, the Sapa brand has a strong reputation in Spain. It is considered a high-quality brand for several reasons, including geographic spread, which allows the company to meet the needs of customers wherever they are located. Furthermore, its strong technical department helps realizes the vision of customers.
Our safety advice:
Leadership and caring for others are key elements in Sapa’s safety work in Spain. This includes teaching how to think before acting, that before starting any work task, it is essential to first identify potential risks and eliminate or mitigate them. The objective is to perform the task as safely as possible.
Projects we are proud of:
Meliá Hotels, the biggest hotel chain in Spain, refurbished its luxury hotel ME Ibiza (pictured, right) with windows from the Technal brand. Installed by Talleres Sineu in Majorca, the Soleal GY sliding windows are used in all 246 rooms. The aim of the owner was to save energy and increase customer comfort.
Deutsche Schule Madrid (pictured, below) is a German international school – and another project which chose aluminium building systems. Architect Grüntuch Ernst selected the Wicona brand’s Wicline 75 Evo windows for the new building.
On the extrusion side, Sapa’s team in Navarra, together with the company Carbotainer, developed a cylinder that stores oxygen for the health industry. These aluminium tubes are covered by carbon fiber and supplied in different colors. Sapa worked to ensure the quality of the shape and the hardness required.
