Ansell shines a light on Spanish market

As part of its European expansion project, Ansell Lighting is planning to open a new office and showroom in Spain’s capital, Madrid.

The new 270 sqm showroom on Calle Santa Teresa 7 will be Ansell’s second dedicated showroom in Europe and is designed to provide the ideal base from which to showcase its extensive product range. The centre will be a platform to drive the company’s expansion into the Spanish, Portuguese, and neighbouring European markets.

A new team has been recruited to oversee the opening of the facility which will house sales, marketing and customer service functions. Having worked in the lighting and smart home industry for many years, Pedro Gogorza has been appointed as country manager for Spain, while Cristina Moreno has joined as office manager. Other recruits to the team include Pedro Delgado and Luis Esteban, both regional sales managers for Ansell Spain, focusing on supporting the growth of the business in the country.

“We have been operating in Spain for nearly a year and have achieved solid growth and results in this time,” said Gogorza. “The new showroom and office opening in Madrid is the next step in the expansion process for us and will provide an impressive space in which to meet customers, showcase our lighting solutions and train our brilliant wholesalers, installers and contractors in the latest smart lighting technologies.”

The company’s aim is to achieve a similar presence in Spain as it has in the UK market.

Mark Abbott, managing director of Ansell Lighting added: “Our European operations have been developed in the field over the last nine months but to have a physical presence and a showroom in such a wonderful location in Madrid is a significant step forward. We’re delighted to have Pedro and Cristina on board and look forward to welcoming more team members in the next few weeks and months.”

The Madrid facility is set to open later this year.
