Celebrating 50 Years of Commitment in Europe

Birla Carbon’s plant in Spain celebrated its 50th anniversary marking its long term commitment to the carbon black industry and customers in Europe.

In an age where things change quickly and industry is in a constant state of flux, celebrating 50 years as a milestone is not a common occurrence. Birla Carbon’s Cantabria plant in Spain achieved this milestone this year, creating a landmark to its commitment to the carbon black industry in Europe and its ability to evolve as a sustainable, progressive partner.

Sharing his thoughts on the milestone, Jacinto Zarca, General Manager, Birla Carbon Spain said, “We are a small big company. Small in the number of workers but big in turnover, profit and commitment to our customers and community. He further added, “We have proved over the last five decades that it is possible to evolve with the changing times, when we stand committed to our principles of sustainability and technology.”

Speaking at the event, John Loudermilk, President, North America and Europe & Africa region, Birla Carbon said, “The Cantabria plant is the most efficient plant in the world in its energy cycle while manufacturing carbon black, providing both major cost advantages and environmental advantages ensuring the sustainability of our future.” For Birla Carbon employees in Spain, this was an opportunity to mark this achievement with representatives from local government, community and customers. The celebrations witnessed the presence of Miguel Angel Revilla, the President of Cantabria, Rosa Eva Díaz Tezanos, Vice President of Cantabria, members of the local community and few customers.
