In 2010, the second generation took over the company, which sought to adapt it to the reality of the 21st century, to its economic, technological, environmental, and regulatory challenges, looking to the future with huge ambition. To pursue this ambition and better tackle the challenges it was facing, the group acquired, in 2018, a fourth manufacturing plant, Pavigrés II. After a virtually complete overhaul, this is now a cutting-edge industrial unit, prepared for the most demanding challenges. The PAVIGRÉS group thus gains a new momentum that will strengthen its growth and expansion. We are confident that this new unit will bring significant benefits to all our customers and suppliers.
The four manufacturing units have an overall installed capacity of 10,000,000 m2 per year due to the substantial investment made in recent years and thanks to more than 700 employees who perform their duties with talent, effort, and commitment day.
The company’s policies and decisions have always been based on two essential principles:
1) Our culture, which is driven by the principles that always guided the company and by the expertise accumulated since 1978;
2) International markets, since we are a company that has always worked for an extensive export market. Our exports, which currently correspond to an average of 94% of our activity, distributed across nearly 85 different markets and more than 600 satisfied customers, forces PAVIGRÉS S.A. to continuously focus on broadening its ranges according to its customers’ needs and requests.
We divide our activity between the project market. Our technical range and, especially, the Pavigrés 21 concept are essential elements, and the distribution market, for which the residential and decorative porcelain stoneware ranges are critical.
We continue to produce the Pavigrés glazed porcelain mosaic, our first product, and the Cerev quick, single-fired, white paste tiles. However, our most significant investments were made in the technical and decorative porcelain tiles sold under the Grespor brand, which take up most of our production capacity.
Concerning technical porcelain tiles, we continue to manufacture the basic Grespor, granites and single-color ranges and the most varied “double-loaded” and “all body through” technical ranges, sold under the Grespor and Feri & Masi brands – in formats ranging from 10×10 cm to 120×60 cm and 90×90 cm. We use a digital printing technique for our decorative porcelain stoneware tiles, even for the most prominent formats – 90×90 cm and 120×60 cm.
Drive, Vision, Work, Service and Quality. These are the mottoes that define Pavigrés Cerâmicas, SA.
