Today, at Aluminera, September 21st, 2021, we celebrate the third anniversary of the acquisition of the first production unit that was purchased to start an aluminum profile extrusion project in Spain. We want to share this moment with all our clients, suppliers, partners and with the entire team that is part of the company. And we do it today, the same day of the opening of the Third Production Shift, starting to produce 24 hours continuously.
This news is one more step towards the development of our company where we continue to walk with the roadmap that was designed at the beginning of the project in September 2018, when we started this ambitious journey. With this new stage, we will achieve greater production, optimization, service improvement and position the company one more step towards the goal set. To get here, we can only thank the trust of all our customers, suppliers and workers, the effort of all of them allows the company to carry on taking more industrial speed in its market activity.
Once we have reached this point, our next step will be to install a second production line that will allow us to have an annual production capacity close to 20,000 tons per year by mid-2023, in this we have already put all
our effort and work to carry it out.
Thank you all very much for your trust, effort and dedication to the Aluminera project.
