Brenntag, the global market leader in chemical distribution, has inaugurated a new facility in Granollers, Spain dedicated to the Food, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics industry. The new facility offers specialized storage vessels, mixing and blending facilities, an application laboratory as well as a White Room for the packaging of Pharmaceutical products within a controlled atmosphere. The specialized storage vessels consists of six stainless steel and nine fiber tanks with a total storing capacity of 390 m³ and can hold different products like glucose, monopropylene glycol, fructose dilution and citric acid dilution.
“Two mixers for tailor-made blendings and formulations together with an application laboratory in which quality controls of these blends can be checked on site are only one of many advantages for our customers offered by the new facility. With our specialized technical sales force and its state-of-the art technology, Granollers is a true center of excellence”, says Frédéric Pierre, Regional Manager Brenntag South Europe.
Designed to serve the South Europe region, the facility close to Barcelona is ideally located for Spanish food companies exporting overseas due to the harbor proximity.
Brenntag expects the site to be certified with the ISO 22000 certification, a special certification for Food safety, within the remainder of the year. The facility is already certified with ISO 9000:2000 and ISO 14001.
