Feb. 5, 2014 -- On Friday, Jan. 17, Juan Vicente Herrera, the president of Castilla and Léon -- an autonomous community in North-Western Spain -- inaugurated a new production line factory for Toro Equipment and Indemat in the municipality of Villavaquerín.

The factory, with an area of 7000m2, houses production lines of dissolved air flotation (DAF) units and compact plants/containers from Toro, a designer and manufacturer of equipment for industrial and urban wastewater treatment, water process, water reuse, and sludge treatment. Likewise, the building also features fabrication of composite material from Indemat, a company specializing in materials research and technological development. 

Indemat has been producing tanks made from fiberglass for Toro's flotation units since the beginning of the line in 2009, leading to a dynamic laboratory which creates new products, materials and ideas for a wide variety of water and wastewater applications. "Our idea is to develop a 'Valley of Water' in the area around Villavaquerín, where technology and knowledge about water treatment, the environment and new materials are transformed into products which fit through the door of a container, which is logistically and industrially speaking, 'the door of the world,'" according to a Toro Equipment press release.

So far, 30 jobs have been created in Villavaquerín. A residential establishment is planned to host the students and trainees who will assist installations from different universities around the world. In the strategic plan for 2018, it's estimated that at least 300 people will be employed, with an increase of the invoice volume of the entire group from  €12 million (US $16.2 million)  to €30 million (US $40.6 million).

The Councilor of Economy Tomás Villanueva, Councilor for the Environment Antonio Silván, Mayor of Villavaquerín, and Santiago Salcedo, CEO of the two companies, have all voiced their support for the project. Other plans to incorporate new office buildings, a testing laboratory to test equipment on a semi-industrial scale, and a production line factory for industrial rotary screens, filter presses, and water and sludge treatment elements are also underway.
