On May 4, 2019, Catalana de Perforacions and Elèctrica Pintó celebrated the 50th anniversary of its beginnings in a party that has gathered more than 400 people in the facilities that the Aquacenter Group has in Santpedor.
Workers, collaborators and customers, among others, have been able to enjoy a day to celebrate and thank the past, present and future of the companies of the group.
The attendees included the presence of the Honorable Mrs. Àngels Chacón (Councilor of Enterprise and Knowledge), Mrs. Bàrbara Minoves (Director of the Territorial Services of Enterprise and Knowledge in Central Catalonia), the Most Excellent Mr. Xavier Codina (Mayor of Santpedor), Mr. Agustí Comas (President of Consell Comarcal Bages), Mr. Eloi Hernàndez (Mayor of Fonollosa) and Mr. David Bonvehí (President of PDECat and neighbor of Fonollosa).
The event began at 10:30 in the morning with a day of open doors for its facilities, where all visitors could see all the offices and ships of the group and see different demonstrations of the activities that the companies of the group carry out. At 12:30 the speeches were made by the authorities present at the event, by Josep Casellas (one of the founding members of PICABASAN who over the years would become Catalana de Perforacions) and Esteve Pintó; son of Josep Pintó (also founding partner of PICABASAN), managing partner of the group companies and President of PIMEC Catalunya Central.
Then, everyone enjoyed a copious appetizer enlivened with an audiovisual that has collected the history of the group and its companies since its inception. Finally, the entry of a cake for all attendees has given way to the closing of the act.
From Catalana de Perforacions, Elèctrica Pintó and the rest of the group’s companies, we would like to thank all those who in one way or another have made this project possible that has reached 50 years of experience and faces the future with a lot of energy and ilusion. Thank you very much to all!
