The factory in Tortosa, awarded for its job security


The Ercros factory in Tortosa has been awarded, for a second consecutive year, with the Feique Safety Award, given by the Business Federation of the Spanish Chemical Industry (Feique) for not having had any accidents among its own personnel throughout 2020. This good result in terms of safety is due, to a large extent, to the involvement of the people who work in the factory and to the periodic awareness campaigns that are carried out.
