Mr. Artur Mas inaugurated the last December 2011 the MACSA I.D. plant in Sant Joan de Vilatorrada. The inauguration consisted of a meeting with the board of management of this family-runned business located in Manresa. After this meeting, the President of the Catalan government Generalitat officially inaugurated the new facilities by unveiling a commemorative plate.
With this new plant, the company, whose forecasted turnover for 2011 was 22 million €, counts with more than 5.000 sqm dedicated to laser coding and marking. The investment for the new plant was around 700.000 € and, according to Macsa’s CEO, Mr. Jordi Piñot, “will allow tripling the production capacity”. Besides, he remarked that the reason for this new production plant is the “wish of rationalizing the processes and achieve production synergies to get a still better quality in our product ranges and services”.
According to Mr. Piñot, this expansion has made possible the fact of moving “from a workshop - type production system to batch production, which will provide capacity increase and cost reduction”. It has also implied creating 14 new positions as well as 8 training grantees through University agreements.
MACSA has implemented some “advanced production tools related to Lean, like the Kanban supplying in the lines”, as stated by Jordi Piñot. The Manresa based company, which is the only Spanish laser marking manufacturing company and the first company in the world having developed a coding dynamic laser for production lines, has now a potential production capacity of 2.000 lasers by shift.
