Gayafores intends to expand its production plant, as well as a number of formats in existing product lines, this year.

For the beginning of 2003, an estimated investment of 4.2 million euros will be used to complete a new glazing line, enlarge the production plant's mill section, and add new serigraphic groups to existing glazing lines.

With an estimated investment of 300,000 euros, Gayafores hopes in the second half of 2003 to introduce new computer software, as well as modernize the company's hardware, to facilitate internal processes and offer faster service to customers.

Before the end of 2003, Gayafores will foresee the incorporation of new formats to existing product lines, including the company's glazed porcelain and white body wall tile lines, the company says.
