ORIGINS

In 1906, a group of industrialists concerned about quality, certification and research projects in the wool industry decided to create an association to support the competitiveness of businesses, which they named Acondicionamiento Tarrasense. These industrialists successfully anticipated solutions for the needs of business groups and laid the foundations of the current concept of Leitat.

Over the years, and thanks to the work carried out, the association has expanded its activities and is now identified by the brand name Leitat.

During this time, its dedication to serving companies and entities has remained unchanged, although the type of activities, its organisation chart and in-house working systems have changed considerably, specialising now in various areas of knowledge that seek out the best technological solutions for companies.

The results achieved in recent years prove that Leitat’s passionate commitment to knowledge generation and the transfer of this to the production sector is an effective model for the fast, efficient and sustainable growth of the economy, while also creating new spaces and models for talent development and employee performance.

ORGANISATION

Acondicionamiento Tarrasense is a non-profit association with its own legal status and assets, established in 1906. It regulates its activities pursuant to Law 4/2008 of 24 April of the Third Book of the Civil Code, relating to Legal Entities (Official Catalan Government Gazette No 5123 of 2 May), Organic Law 1/2002 of 22 March regulating the Right of Association (Official Spanish Government Gazette 73 of 26 March), and its bylaws.

Governing bodies

The Board of Directors is made up of eight members who come from manufacturing, business and professional backgrounds and business associations. The General Assembly is the supreme governing body of the entity, in which all its partners are represented.

The Board of Directors has the powers to represent, direct and administer the association. The Board of Directors must also implement the decisions made by the General Assembly in accordance with the established regulations, instructions and guidelines.
