On 7 June, Basque Health Cluster’s members Mizar, FM control y eMedica, opened their new facilities in Jundiz Business Park, in Álava. Gotzone Sagardui, Regional Health Councillor, and Estíbaliz Hernáez, Regional Deputy Councillor of Technology, Innovation and Digital Transformation attended the event.
With a surface area of over 3,500 m2, the new plant will increase manufacturing capacity and boost collaboration amongst the group’s employees, thus launching a new era for Grupo Alcor.
The new facilities will hold the group’s companies that are working in the areas of new technologies and health: Mizar Additive Manufacturing, Mizar Health, FM Control, eMedica and Karten Space. Atik, an automotive company and the other company in the group, is located in another unit in Jundiz.
Almost one million euros have been invested in the plant during the pandemic. Estíbaliz Hernáez highlighted the importance of this attitude in such difficult times. This capital expenditure is added to the eight million euros that were previously pumped into new technologies by Group Alcor.
Gotzone Sagardui, Regional Health Councillor, said that “thanks to the synergy and knowledge exchange between different sectors, Grupo Alcor is able to offer and apply integrated and personalised solutions, which is what the healthcare sectors demands”. She highlighted that this “helps the Basque Country to continue to have one of the most advanced public health services in Europe”.
Grupo ALCOR is an industrial group which aims to create and develop technological companies in the automotive, new technologies and healthcare sectors. The companies in the group employ 180 people and had a turnover of 36 million euros in 2020.
