One of the world's biggest and most advanced for this product type, the new plant produces ventilated facades and extruded porcelain steps, providing outstanding performance and quality while ensuring low consumption
Faveker Architectural Ceramics, a leading Spanish producer of ventilated façade systems and extruded ceramic elements for outdoor use, has joined forces with SACMI in the construction and start-up of a complete plant in the city of Alcorisa in the Aragona district, where the company is based.
The primary SAMCA Group brand and a part of the well-known Gres de Aragon (already a SACMI customer), Faveker has significantly increased output capacity thanks to the installation of a complete line for manufacturing extruded porcelain body ventilated facades. This same plant also allows the company to manufacture large porcelain step pieces.
The new plant matches Faveker's overall strategy to perfection; in addition to its focus on eco-sustainability and efficiency, the company also aims to supply the market with ultra-high quality products characterised by excellent bending strength, low maintenance and ease of installation.
Alongside 360° coverage of the customer's main business, SACMI has supplied all the solutions needed to combine quality, efficiency and performance. Every single step of the line has, in fact, been equipped with dedicated quality control solutions, while logistics and plant flows have been redesigned to maximise efficiency and minimise consumption (as much as 15% lower than on a traditional configuration).
Complete customer satisfaction also stemmed from highly effective SACMI-Faveker teamwork, which continued apace despite the pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions. The result? On-schedule installation and start-up of what is set to be the largest, most modern factory in existence for the manufacture of such products.
For SACMI, this order highlights the customer's continued confidence in our solutions following the 2017 purchase of a complete plant for extruded products by sister company Gres de Aragon. In short, the order underscores the potential of the 'third tile dimension' sector in which SACMI plays a key role with its EXTRUDƷD TILES brand, a provider of technological/plant engineering solutions for every extruded product need, from raw materials to logistics.
