German multinational corporation Hartmann, a CataloniaBio & HealthTech member, will invest €10 million between 2019 and 2021 in its two plants in Mataró and Montornès del Vallès (Barcelona), according to financial newspaper Expansión.
The Mataró factory is a global benchmark in developing and manufacturing adhesive healthcare products and is currently responsible for production of the company’s popular plasters.
In 2017, Hartmann acquired the Lindor brand from Procter & Gamble and saw revenue of €175 million in Spain, up 52% from 2016. The company is open to new acquisitions to continue growing in Spain and expects to see sales of €250 million in 2019.
