Madrid, June 26, 2018. Carbures reinforces its relationship with Pemex, the Mexican oil giant. The Spanish technology specialist in the design, engineering and manufacture of structures in composite materials has extended in seven months the two-year contract signed in 2015 with Petróleos Mexicanos, Pemex, for the development of platforms and other oil infrastructure. This extension of the contract, whose completion has now been set in December this year, represents an additional billing of 83 million pesos (3.5 million euros) for the technology throughout 2018.

The relevance of the extension of this contract is that Carbures CW consolidates itself as one of PEMEX's benchmarks in the provision of complex engineering services. In addition, in the field of engineering and construction of civil structures made of composite material, Carbures developed for Acciona Infraestructuras pillars of berthing for large cruises in composite materials. It was a pioneer model of maritime work in the world, whose potential for composite materials is enormous and which already operate at full capacity in Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura.

"Three years ago we signed our first contract with Pemex and we started a path that, we were fully convinced that it would allow us to enter a very important strategic country for our business such as Mexico. Today we can say that it is a country in which we continue to grow and it gives us the opportunity to enter new markets and to diversify our lines of activity in that region, in which we have a great interest also in the aeronautical and automotive sector, such as strategic geographic area for it ", adds Contreras.
The CEO of Carbures, Borja Martínez-Laredo affirms that "In the latest results, Civil Works was consolidated as the division that grew the most in terms of turnover and that has already shown a positive Ebitda. By 2018, we hope that growth will not only consolidate but will continue to increase. "
