The company opened new headquarters of more than 3,000 square metres and announced that it plans to increase its turnover from 20 million euros last year to 25 million euros by 2023. At the same time, it expects to increase its workforce from the current 250 jobs to more than 300 by the end of the year. In addition, it will soon open a new branch in Mexico dedicated to industrial maintenance, automation engineering and the repair of wind turbine components.
Gurpea, a Navarrese company specialising in the maintenance, improvement and optimisation of industrial processes through various automation and mechatronics tools, expects to grow by 25% in turnover and 20% in staff this year. In this regard, Antxón Errea, one of the company’s founders together with Abel Moreno, is confident of ending 2023 with an increase in turnover of 33% to 25 million compared to the 20 million achieved last year.
In terms of job creation, the organisation expects to create more than 300 jobs compared to the current 250. All these figures were presented during the inauguration of Gurpea’s new headquarters in the Comarca II Industrial Estate, where it already has another production centre. A work area that has been enlarged by 120 % thanks to the more than 3,000 square metres of surface area that the new facility occupies.
Precisely on the occasion of this launch, Errea and Moreno announced that, among their most immediate projects, is the start-up of a new branch office in the Mexican town of Querétaro. This will be dedicated mainly to industrial maintenance, automation engineering and the repair of wind turbine components. And to get it up and running, they have the support and help of Tetrace, another company from Navarre, as an associate. At present, Gurpea is working with customers in the United States, Mexico, Poland, Germany and Australia and is handling orders from such important firms as Volkswagen, Mapsa, ZF Group and General Mills, among others.
