The Spanish bank Caixa, has bought 20% of the company Xtraice, through its investment fund for specialized industrial technology.
Xtraice and Caixa will be partners in the new expansion route of the company, with special attention to the USA, where 80% of the synthetic ice rinks already are installed by Xtraice, and also in growing markets like the Middle East.
But the investment will also make the company grow in its employment. Xtraice is hoping to employ 18 persons for 2013, apart from the 15 employees that are already working for the company.
