In a year starring the Fagor Electrodomésticos crisis, other more positive news had also occurred, such as the integration of Caja Laboral and Ipar Kutxa, becoming the new LABORAL Kutxa, one of the most solvent financial institutions of the State.
In the industrial sector, it is worth mentioning the progress of the Orona Ideo project, the Orona Innovation city in Hernani (Gipuzkoa); the events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the cooperatives Fagor Ederlan, Copreci and Batz; or the integration of the activities of Fagor Arrasate and Onapres to expand the range of solutions in the forming and processing of sheet metal.
