About us

Company details

The Grupo Armando Alvarez was founded in 1964 and is the largest Spanish transformer of plastic polyethylene film.

It consists of a series of top quality companies that complement each other with an extruded volume of some 300,000 tons and a turnover of some 700 million Euros. The Group is now part of a small group of companies that lead the sector in Europe. There is no doubt that its policy of work,  tenacity, and conviction, and above all rigour in each and every one of our operations - key values underlined by the founder of the Group, Armando Alvarez Villanueva, and continued by the current Chief Executive Officer José Ramón Alvarez - is the key to this evolution.

Origins of the Business Group
The origins of the Group go back to the early 1960s with the manufacturing of various types of wooden packaging in small carpentry installations. Subsequently a company was created for the manufacture of metallic drums for chemical products. It was not until 1964 with the creation of the company Plásticos Españoles, S.A., better known as Aspla, that the first company in the Group devoted to the transformation of plastic materials was born.

As from 1977 the Group expanded beyond the region of Cantabria with the purchase of the two companies Reyde, S. A. and Reyenvas, S. A.

Its current position as a leader in the sector was achieved step by step with its strategy of purchasing companies to complement the main product lines of the Group.

The takeover of companies accelerated in the last two decades with the inclusion of Silvalac, S.A., Industrias Gráficas Castells, S.A., Plásticos Vanguardia, S.A., Rafia Industrial, S.A., Solplast, S.A., Sotrafa, S.A. and Macresac, S.A. was a success.

Aspla-Plásticos Españoles, S. A., which is located in the town of Torrelavega with its noble industrial tradition, is the current headquarters of the Grupo Armando Alvarez. The growth of the Group can be considered exemplary and has been possible thanks to the contribution of its human team that is fully integrated with and committed to the business project. Its founder, Armando Alvarez Villanueva, (the President and Managing Director) transferred a policy of work, tenacity, conviction, and above all rigour in all its operations that are doubtless the keys to its success. The founder’s second generation is already part of the business process with its renewed values to face new challenges.
