Two years later, it opened its first automated warehouse, with a capacity of up to 16,500 pallets.
In 1993, Pamesa introduced a cogeneration system to generate electricity and re-use gases from the spray-drying process.
In 1995, double-loading presses were installed for the manufacture of the well-known Valencia series.
In 1997 PAMESA founded a Brazilian subsidiary, PAMESA DO BRASIL, which specialised in polishing porcelain tiles. Subsequently, a 100.000 m2 production plant was opened with a production capacity of 36.000 m2 of tiles a day.
One year later, Pamesa Cerámica was ISO-9001 certified by LLOYD´S REGISTER QUALITY ASSURANCE.
In the same year, it installed a second cogeneration plant, thus reducing its consumption of natural gas during the spray-drying process. The plant has a thermo-electrical capacity of 15 megawatts an hour.
The Pamesa Group, whose business experience spans a period of over 30 years, currently owns premises covering a total surface area of over 180.000 m2 with an estimated annual turnover of 205.000.000 euros.
It has a global production capacity of over 26.400,000 m2 a year, with three intelligent warehouses with a joint capacity of up to 65.000 pallets.
Pamesa is a business group in an ongoing state of evolution. Its commitment to the environment is reflected by the introduction of a third cogeneration plant, being the first ceramic tile manufacturer to have been assigned CO2-emission rights in compliance with the Kyoto Protocol.
The Pamesa Group contributes to the fight against deforestation by using euro pallets. It also uses skips to recycle cardboard, paper, plastic and other materials.
It minimizes the production of waste or hazardous materials, and recycles and re-uses waste water for the Pamesa Group and for purchasers of its spray-dried clays.
