“A fundamental part of the growth of central Spain is being assumed by Castilla-La Mancha, we are the rib cage of Madrid and we are serving as a reasonable and logical expansion of industrial land,” he said.

«We need you, this region needs more entrepreneurs who want to win and the rest of us are already here to distribute and distribute. We do not promote hatred, here you will always have us as allies “, he pointed out, thanking Ehlis for wanting to bet on Castilla-La Mancha and ensuring that the regional government also wants to bet on” everyone who wants to create. “

Ehils “got it right”

“Long and delicate” project

José Manuel Tofiño, has acknowledged that the arrival of Ehlis has been a «complicated» project, which has followed a «long, tedious and very delicate» process, putting in value that for the installation of the company he contacted «a lot of owners who had very small soils that by themselves it would have been impossible for them to have a company ”and that grouping has served to create the plot.

“I put it in value because in this polygon in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2022 there were many people who suffered a lot, there was talk that only those who had large plots could have a company. It is the first social work of the many that have been later, grouping small plots so that companies could come, “he explained.

For all this process, he thanked those responsible for Elhis who have remembered Illescas and has stated that he hopes that they will serve as a “mirror so that many companies that doubt where to go have no doubt that where they have to come is to Illescas ».

On the part of the company, its Director of Logistics, Fernando Aldrey, has shown Ehlis’ “joy” for being present in Illescas. “You only have to go out to the avenues of this polygon, see the dimension it has, how it is executed and the illustrious neighbors that it already houses to realize that we have made the right choice in the choice of this center,” he stressed.

However, he has considered that the most important thing is not where they are “but with whom”, assessing the relationship they have had both with public administrations and with the urban planning agent to address their arrival in the Toledo municipality. “We are in very good hands,” he concluded.

The president of the Toledo Provincial Council, Álvaro Gutiérrez, has highlighted the continuous logistical growth that Illescas is experiencing through its Iberum Central Platform with the installation of new projects and has thanked the general director of Ehlis, Alejandro Ehlis, for having chosen Illescas , by the province of Toledo and by Castilla-La Mancha to build its second platform (the first is in Sant Andreu, 20 kilometers from Barcelona), with the objective of becoming a local supplier for its clients in the center.
