The Catalan office of the chemical company Solvay returns to Barcelona, where it has been located for many years. This November, Solvay has moved its team from Martorell to the new business center that NETWORKIA Business Center has just opened in the Paseo de Gracia. After some time evaluating other alternatives of business centers in the city center, the chemistry has opted for the value proposition offered by Networkia.
This new business center housed in a historic building, former headquarters of the insurance company La Union y el Fénix, breathes a combination of technology and tradition. The latest in state-of-the-art technology both in network electronics and in power and stability in the internet supply are joined by ceilings of more than four meters with classic moldings of the early twentieth century.
Solvay had never been in a Business Center. This decision taken after a thorough analysis of the sector can set precedents and, if the experience is positive, could extend to other divisions and countries.
Solvay is an international company of advanced chemicals and materials. It serves diversified end markets such as automotive and aerospace or consumer goods and sanitation, energy and environment, electricity and electronics, construction and industrial applications. The group is headquartered in Brussels and employs about 30,000 people in 53 countries. In 2015, it generated sales of 12.4 billion euros, 90% of which came from activities in which it is one of the first three companies in the world. Solvay SA is listed on Euronext in Brussels and Paris.
