The start up of the new manufacturing plant has created 15 new job positions and implicates an investment of 2 millions of euros

Profiltek, the leading Spanish Brand for shower enclosures recently called a meeting for the specialized media, announcing the launch of its new manufacturing plant, located in the Spanish town of Quartell, entirely dedicated to the production of polyester resin shower trays. A new milestone for Profiltek, of which the company´s Managing Director, Mr Felix Lafuente stated to the press “we will considerably increase qualitative customization options to provide our customers with more shower solutions” and added “the new production plant of shower trays assumes a vertical integration of a product category we have working with already for a few years”.

The new Profiltek premises occupy a total area of 2.800 square meters and delivers a monthly production plant capacity of 3.000 units of shower trays. “We will invest a total amount of 2 million euros into this new project, designed within the framework of an Industry 4.0 factory model, a pioneering plant in Spain, as the first factory with a fully automated manufacturing technology” according to the Managing Director of the company. The launch of new striking collections of ultra flat low profile shower trays by Profiltek, to complete bathroom environments with innovative, qualitative and highly aesthetic elements, will offer unrivalled solutions for totally unique shower spaces.

A total of seven new Profiltek solutions (Gotham, Zenda, Lotus, Daray, Matis, Rodik and Kovert) that additionally involve a weight reduction of 30%, when compared to traditional existing shower trays, will significantly improve logistics, handling and installation of the product. Following the same customization philosophy as with the shower enclosure product portfolio, the Profiltek shower trays are adjustable to the dimension of each shower area, because they are produced in resin with mineral fillers composite, so they can be cut to dimension to the available space. Moreover, all shower trays can be manufactured in each colour on request from the RAL colour chart and already incorporate antibacterial treatment technology, are easy to clean and comply with anti slip ratings.
