Avinent, CataloniaBio & HealthTech member, will invest €8 million to expand its facilities by 7.000 square metres in Santpedor (Barcelona). The construction of the building, designed by the architect Manuel Guerrero, will finish in 2022.
The company’s new building is a reflection of the ambition, modernity and technological spirit of the firm. Last year Avinent has made a commitment to 3D printing, apart from its dental implant solutions. In this sense, new areas will be created for 3D printing in metal and polymers, laboratories of new technologies of 3D printing and bio-printing, a space for innovation and R & D, among others.
According Albert Giralt, CEO of Avinent and board member of CataloniaBio & HealthTech, "our situation was already unfeasible if we wanted to continue growing".
