Reindustrialization in Spain: Closing a manufacturing facility for Mondi

BPI group’s Spanish branch, MOA BPI group, recently concluded a reindustrialization project with Mondi, an international packaging firm. In the midst of restructuring its operations in Europe, Mondi decided to close a 35,000m2 manufacturing facility in Polinyà, Catalonia.

MOA BPI group implemented the reindustrialization and retooling plan for the factory, and provided outplacement services for affected employees, successfully completing the project in less than 5 months.
