This acquisition has been realized through Feralco Iberia, the subsidiary of the FERALCO Group in Spain and Portugal, and will generate “obvious commercial synergies with our major inorganic coagulants customers.

The incorporation of  GESITMA in Feralco Iberia, which currently has two production units in the Basque Country and one in Madrid, will broaden FERALCOs position in Spain and Portugal and allow a strong foothold in the circular economy.
