In a year so negative for the economy, especially for industry, the Corporation performed satisfactorily. The sales of the Industrial Group and the distribution Group together accounted for €2.55bn, with exports totalling €371.47m.
The industrial employment generated by the Corporation’s co-operatives in the Basque Autonomous Community was close to 7% and more than 15% in the province of Gipuzkoa, which meant that one out of every seven workers in the industrial sector in the province was working for an MCC company.
Ikerlan took part in a new Eureka project and the Orbea co-operative supplied the Euskadi Cycling Foundation with racing bikes.
