We have a planned investment of 28 million euros, including all phases.
What is the company's estimate in the consolidation of both direct and indirect jobs?
We hope to generate between 45 and 50 jobs.
Symborg needs employees with a high agricultural technical training based on R + D + I. What are the most demanded technical jobs by your company?
As you said, at Symborg, due to the nature of our business, we need professionals with high technical training such as engineers, agronomists and biologists.
What are the strategic sectors and the main lines of production and action to be developed from Symborg?
We always focus on the agricultural sector, since one of our main objectives is to help overcome the sustainability challenges that arise at the global level.
The company has nine subsidiaries. How will they benefit from this new plant?
The new plant means growth in our product catalog and an increase in turnover.
What are the areas that the company plans to promote in the future?
The areas that we will promote will be R&D to develop activities, including an advanced biotechnology laboratory, as well as a manufacturing plant for the production of biofertilizers, biopesticides and biostimulants.
Are some areas related to the environment?
All our areas and products are focused on caring for and protecting the environment. Our research and the products we develop are organic and are always aligned with global sustainability challenges.
