"The total investment of 6 million euros in this new automated single-level plant is allowing us to improve internal logistics, something that will have an impact on greater speed, efficiency and quality of service," says the president and founder of this family business, Lluís Mª Ginjaume Torras, which, due to its links with Finland, a paper-producing country, has held the position of consul of this country for almost two decades, and is currently consul emeritus.

Although 80% of its clients are Spanish, the rest of the volume is exported to Portugal and France, "countries where we plan to grow", explains Ernest Ginjaume. The CEO of the company, and son of the president of the same, ensures a generational change with great expectations for the future.
Comart annually distributes about 35.000 tons of product, a volume that this year is expected to increase by 5%, with an approximate turnover of 30 million euros. It has a permanent stock of 6.000 t of coils and sheets, and has a workforce of 85 workers.
