Protecmed is strengthening its logistics presence in Barcelona with a new warehouse. The engineering firm has acquired an industrial complex with a total surface area of 1,309 m2 and an outdoor patio area measuring 600 m2 on the El Plà de Bruguera industrial estate, located in Castellar del Vallès, according to a statement issued by the company.
The environmental engineering company, which specialises in solutions for treating drinking water and wastewater, has strengthened its presence on the outskirts of Barcelona with this purchase. Nevertheless, the company, which is undergoing an internationalisation process with projects around Europe, as well as in South America and North Africa, has established its headquarters in Sant Cugat del Vallès.
Located forty kilometres from Barcelona, Protecmed’s new warehouse represents another yet investment in the logistics market in the Catalan capital. During the first quarter of 2018, logistics absorption grew by 50% in Barcelona, with 185,982 m2 of space leased in total, according to data from the consultancy firm Forcadell.
