Amid recent news of curved glass manufacturer Cricursa’s bankruptcy and uncertain future, Spanish-based architectural glass developer Tvitec is reportedly one of the company’s interested buyers. A spokesperson from Tvitec told USGNN™ that the company is closely monitoring Cricursa’s situation.

“In all, our processing activities are [prepared for] a possible integration of Crircursa,” the representative told USGNN.

If social and economic conditions allow for the purchase, Tvitec will maintain Cricursa’s activity, the representative says.

Local media outlets reported that Tvitec has submitted a preliminary offer. However, the reports say the offer would only secure the employment of between 50 and 120 workers, a fraction of the nearly 300 employees working for Cricursa.

Employees have demonstrated for the continuity of their jobs at least twice this month. Last weekend, workers protested in front of the famed Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, where Cricursa is based. The church is home to one of the company’s recently manufactured pieces and reportedly one of its last projects before suspending payments to workers.

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