Ramón Alejandro, President of SAICA, has been awarded with the second highest ranking Order of the British Empire: Honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE), for services to the environmental sector in the UK.
The honour was awarded by the UK Ambassador in Spain, Hugh Elliott, during a medal ceremony at Saica headquarters in Zaragoza.
“It is a true privilege to receive this honour,” said Alejandro. “We have had a special relationship with the United Kingdom since we entered the UK market in 2006. Today, we can proudly say we operate from 23 sites in the UK – more than any other country outside Spain – and employ over 2,300 people there. Since our entry, we have invested more than £700m into the UK market and we continue to invest for the long-term.”
