Pamesa

Founded in 1972, Pamesa started out by manufacturing ceramic floor tiles, using tunnel kilns to fire them.

In 1981, it began to make single fired ceramic wall tiles. In 1987, with the inauguration of its first Compactto porcelain tile factory, Pamesa became the first manufacturer to introduce porcelain tiles to Spain. 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 40 years, currently owns premises covering a total surface area of over 180.000 m2 with an estimated annual turnover of 320.000.000 euros. It has a global production capacity of over 45.000,000 m2 a year, with three intelligent warehouses with a joint capacity of up to 65.000 pallets.
