The family company Boix Maquinaria has been exporting their in-house designed and manufactured box-building machinery for the food and farming industries to the United States for over 30 years.

In 2019 Boix Maquinaria decided to locate its production in the US and expand there into personalised technical customer service, including repair, revision and preventive maintenance.

"We have put a lot of effort into improving our international network to stabilize our growth, be present in different markets and contribute to job creation"

COFIDES awarded Boix Maquinaria USA LLC, the project company, a M€2.5 joint venture loan charged to the Fondo para Operaciones de Inversión en el Exterior de la Pequeña y Mediana Empresa [Spanish initials, FONPYME; fund for SME foreign investment operations]. The loan was used to cover the purchase of the property and construction and preparation of the building to house a showroom, offices, warehouse and workshop. Boix Maquinaria’s total investment amounted to M€3.6.

By expanding its operations, Boix Maquinaria will strengthen its commercial relations with medium-sized packaging manufacturers and broaden its area of business influence in the US as well as in Canada. Juan Antonio Boix Sebastián stresses the effort deployed by the company “to improve our international network, stabilise growth, consolidate our presence in different marketplaces and contribute to job creation“.
