The company has brought together 35 of its main clients in Logroño from France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Portugal and other countries, in addition to Spain. Garnica exports 90% of its production and has 5 factories, three of them in La Rioja, another in Valencia de Don Juan (León) and another in Samazan, in the Aquitaine region (France).

The commemorative events have included a tour of Laurel Street, in which its visitors have had the opportunity to get to know the neighborhood and taste up to 16 of its unique tapas; a working day at the Hotel Marqués de Riscal, with a visit to its wineries; and a gala dinner at the Círculo Logroñés.

Garnica is the leading European producer of poplar plywood with more than 220,000 m3 of boards per year, revenues of more than € 140 million and more than 600 customers in 36 countries around the world. The company expects to invest € 50 million until 2019 and create 400 new jobs in the next four years.
