The country is one of the largest industrial nations in the world and it is very important for us to be there. The most important economic sectors in Spain are the automotive industry, metal and mechanical engineering, the chemical industry and the food and beverage industry. These areas are growing steadily and show good growth figures. Thus, Spain offers a strong sales market for our products.
