Spanish specialists unite with German machine builder
Bellmer opened a subsidiary in the Iberian Peninsula on 1 July 2010. The new operation has more than 20 specialist staff located in Tolosa and Valladolid, all of whom have considerable experience in the paper industry.

They include skilled papermakers and former employees of renowned paper machine builders such as Beloit, Enertec and Gorostidi. Unai Galarraga, Bellmer’s long-standing representative in the region, has assumed the role of managing director at the new subsidiary.

Bellmer Ibérica’s main target markets are Spain, Portugal and South America, where it takes care of consulting, sales, engineering and service for new and existing customers. The use of the customer’s native language will be a considerable advantage for the new operation – it will aid communication and help ensure that projects run smoothly. The recruitment of local specialists means the Bellmer Group will be in a position to supply lamella headboxes as well as film presses.

The young Spanish team have notched up some early successes such as the order for the rebuild of the paper machine at Papelera de la Alqueria, as well as a move-and-modernise project in South America. All machines and products are manufactured at Bellmer’s headquarters in Niefern.
