Cigar factory


The Altadis Group, resulting from the strategic alliance between the Spanish leader Tabacalera, and its French equivalent, Seita, is one of the leaders in the European tobacco industry. The Group is world leader in the cigar market, and positioned third in the cigarette market in western Europe. Bovis Lend Lease was assigned the Construction Management for a new factory in Solares-Emtrambasaguas, Santander.
The factory has a built surface area of 32,000 sq m, along with 65,000 sq m of external works and landscaping and is equipped with the latest technology, ensuring its competitive edge in the international market.
The factory generates over 460 new direct jobs in the area.
The modern cigar production plant is situated on a green field site 14 km. from the city of Santander in the “El Bosque” Industrial Park and replaces two other existing facilities, one in the north and one in the south of Spain.
The Project concluded within budget and on time.
