Porcelanosa has invested a total of 55 million euros in the development of its new 375,000 sq. ft. plant in the Castellón municipality of Villarreal , where the company’s headquarters are located. This center will produce close to 14 million sq. ft. per year of large-format porcelain and sintered stone.
“The new facility has the most advanced machinery,” they say from Porcelanosa . Specifically, the measurements of the material to be manufactured are 320×160 cm and 270×120 cm with thicknesses of 6, 12 and 20 mm, and with machinery capable of producing 30 mm-thick surfaces. In addition, the production systems are prepared to make and work pieces of up to 360×160 cm.
The Porcelanosa plant stands out for the implementation of the most avant-garde technology in the different stages of the production of large-format porcelain tiles and sintered stone. Thus, the raw material reception process has been automated through control software.
For the pressing section, the two most advanced presses on the market have been installed, integrating the latest technology for 3D design, achieving visual continuity in any dimension of the piece. The enameling, decoration and texture machinery has been unified, achieving better quality and resolution in the tables.
According to Porcelanosa the new center, specialized in large-format surfaces, is positioned as the “most modern facility in the world and a pioneer in the industrial ceramic sector.”
