Below we show the most significant points in the development of what is now Kupsa since its origins more than forty years ago to the present.
Thanks to the good work of the Technical-Sales team the old facilities are insufficient to cover the demand for our ‘excellent’ products. Thinking ahead to the future, a great effort is made to purchase a site of 50,000 m2 (now 90,000 m2) to build the new premises, where the company is located today: Factory I, Research and Development Laboratory, Offices and Product Warehouse.
The company attends the Maderalia Trade Fair in Valencia and presents a comprehensive range of UV DRIED products for wood and similar products. These are applied on the stand, cause quite a stir in the market, and confirm KUPSA’s desire to consolidate itself as one of the leading firms in the wood coating sector.
The first industrial applications abroad are achieved, processes of LACQUERING WITH UV DRYING and application to ROBOTS:
- UV Finish Lacquering: the second industrial application in the world of a white finish UV dried in an on-line installation with a robot.
- UV Base Lacquering: First industrial application in the world of a UV dried white base in an on-line installation with a robot.
With the aim of conserving the environment, a research team is set up in our laboratories that would lead to the commissioning of a new line to manufacture water-based products, Factory VII. Other buildings on which construction work starts are an intermediate products manufacturing unit, Resins Warehouse III and a 1,000 m2 Packaging Unit.
KUPSA currently has a production capacity of over 30,000 tonnes per year of products for wood finishes, furniture, industrial carpentry and similar products, plastics, etc… which puts it, both in terms of production volume and the technology used in the design and manufacture of the products, in the vanguard of the sector in Spain.
