Cricursa Faces Liquidation Unless a Buyer is Secured

Curved glass manufacturer Cricursa, based in Barcelona, Spain, is facing an uncertain future. According to El Nacional, the company filed for bankruptcy in December and reportedly has debts of approximately $68,595,300*.

The government of Lleida, a province in northeast Spain, met today, February 9, to cover the case, which includes a call for liquidation or the sale of the company. According to the report, the delegate of the Government in Lleida, Bernat Solé, stated they will work “tirelessly” to ensure activity in plants continue.

Cricursa has employed nearly 200 people at its plants in La Sentiu de Sió and Balaguer, cities in Lleida. The company also has another 130 employees at its plant in Granollers, which is about 21 miles outside of Barcelona. According to reports, a group of workers gathered last week in front of the Sentiu de Sió plant as a sign of protest against their uncertain situation, and other outlet reports say workers haven’t been paid in months.

At press time, representatives from Cricursa had not responded to request for comment.
