During the "Supplier Day" seminar, the companies Eurogruas, Navec and Línea Vertical presented the most innovative projects they have undertaken at the Cepsa facilities in San Roque.
For example, during the course of the seminar, a project was presented on the new electronic work permits and what the application of this technological innovation means for organizing industrial work, in line with Cepsa's ongoing commitment to safety, which is one of the company's fundamental values.
Through initiatives such as that held yesterday, Cepsa seeks to promote communication and dialog as key elements of working in the same direction with a shared vision and pursuing added value for both parties.
Carmen Romero, Secretary General of the Cádiz Confederation of Employers, was one of the participants in the event. She discussed the business lines the entity she represents is currently developing. Gema Pérez Lozano, the delegate for Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment, presented various training, subsidy and innovation programs offered by the Autonomous Government of Andalusia that are available to companies. We heard from the Mayor of San Roque, Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix, and the director of the refinery, Miguel Pérez de la Blanca, to round off the day.
