Grupo Segura takes part in the APPI’s commemoration for its first two decades of trayectory
Last 28th of September, APPI, the Association of Industrial Park of Almussafes gathered more than 200 people to celebrate its twentieth anniversary. In that commemoration, in addition to the Company representatives, attended the Mayor of Almussafes, Toni González, the General Director of Industry and Energy of the Generalitat Valenciana, Diego Maciá, also former presidents of that entity as our HR Director Luis Sánchez, and various special guests, in order to look back and review the most outstanding achievements of these two decades of its trajectory. Both political leaders reaffirmed their commitment to APPI to “continue to move forward together”.
It was in 1997, when the project began to take shape and was officially constituted the entity, which currently groups a total of 88 companies. “We were just a few companies, surrounded by orange fields, it was difficult to indicate how to get to our factories because of the necessary infrastructures to facilitate access have not yet been developed”, explained the first president of the association, Luis Sánchez, our coworker and Director of Human Resources. “At the beginning, we did not have a medical service or a post office, which created the need to do something that would allow us to organize better,” he recalls.
APPI interrelates companies with others and is a vital forum for the participation and the search of ideas that provide Juan Carlos I Industrial Park with all the necessary tools for development, innovation, technology, growth and job creation and wealth. Grupo Segura, as a partner of the APPI, remains committed to continue to coordinate with the permanent commission of the APPI and continue to progress together, both in adapting the park to the new market and in achieving common improvements. Grupo Segura continues showing its support in the initiatives and new joint projects of the APPI, and contributing in the knowledge and business development.
