Since the beginning of March, even before the declaration of the state of alarm, the SILAM Group is collaborating with different companies (both locally and internationally) for the development, manufacture and supply of ventilators and personal protective equipment (face masks and protective screens mainly). We are currently involved in 9 different projects.
We give absolute priority to all these projects, as well as to the orders we receive from our clients in the healthcare sector. Some of those have been delivered in less than 24 hours.
The Silam brand is the current leader in the Iberian Peninsula and a benchmark in the European Union regarding the transformation of HCR silicone thanks to its facilities in Zumaia (Gipuzkoa) and Sant Llorenç d’Hortons (Barcelona).
In these two facilities, we manufacture silicone compounds, tubes, profiles and gaskets for a wide variety of sectors. A significant part of its production volume is currently destined to compounds and components for the medical-health, pharmaceutical and agri-food sectors.
