The leading company in the manufacture of shower trays and bathroom fittings won the European award for the Business of the Year and has thus strengthened its position in the industry.
The Spanish company Acquabella has been named Business of the Year. The chairman of Construplas S.L.U., Juan José Benavent, collected the award at the Grand Final of the European Business Awards this year, at an exclusive awards ceremony held in Warsaw, Poland.
With its commitment to innovation and continual improvement, Acquabella has become the leading brand in the manufacture of shower trays and complete solutions for bathrooms. After it recovered from the economic crisis, Acquabella learned how to adapt to a continually changing market, boost its strengths and grow exponentially. Proof of this is the consolidation of its leading role within the bathroom industry. The company currently exports to more than 40 countries, has tripled its revenues over the past 6 years and has added more than 200 employees to its roster, with a particular focus on young workers.
Juan José Benavent expressed that he was “proud of the entire Acquabella team” for managing to win the Award for Business of the Year at a European level. “This award is a recognition of the business aspects that are so important to our company, such as ethics, innovation and financial strength. It drives us on to continue working on achieving new goals and constant improvement”.
