Staying faithful to our philosophy to KEEP THE PLANET CLEAN, we installed a new energy system for biomass combustion in our Barcelona factory.
Unlike oil, biomass is a renewable fuel that is capable of producing thermal energy and/or electricity, making it a clean, modern, and safe energy. It helps to reduce the greenhouse effect and its combustion process does not generate pollutants since it has a neutral balance of CO2 and CO.
It’s a way to recycle and reduce waste and it also helps to prevent forest fires because biomass comes from the cleaning and maintenance of forests.

One more year Montana Colors will remain faithful to the date. On this occasion the graffiti exhibition will feature the very special guest, Belin.

Yesterday, without even having had time to digest the start of the new year, during some maintenance work made by another company external to ours we have suffered an accident that has destroyed two paint storages, and parts of a gas installation. Luckily enough the factory stands practically intact.
First and foremost in this moment of concern is the recovery of the two workers which suffered burns during the incident. The two men are employees of the company Pearre from Zaragoza, supplier of ours since more than a decade, which where at the time of the fire conducting maintenance work at the site. Pedro and Ismael! We are with you all the way!
We also want to send out our regards to Carles Cornadó, head of production at Montana, who gave first aid to the wounded and acted fast to alert emergency at the first stages against the fire.
Not to be forgotten is the great work of the Catalan Firefighters , and the Local Police force of Sant Vicenç de Castellet as well as the Mossos d’ Esquadra for their great profesionality and sensibility in such a delicate and tense situation.
Today, Sunday, we are working with all we have to restore normality in our production as fast as possible, and we believe that in a few weeks we will be back at 100%.
We are truly grateful for all the solidarity shown by neighbors, friends, clients, suppliers and at he same time we would like to apologize for this frightening situation and all the discomfort and inconvenience created.
‘A man that never falls over is no braver than the one who gets back up after falling.’
Jordi Rubio. CEO of Montana Colors
