Grupo Upper opens refrigerated DC

On 13 April, SPAR Spain partner Grupo Upper opened its new Distribution Centre (DC) for chilled goods in the industrial area of Los Camachos Sur, in Cartagena.

This new refrigerated warehouse offers employment to 65 team members. On a surface area of 5,000m² with a capacity of 16,000m³, the new DC stocks fruit and vegetables, refrigerated and fish chambers, previously located in the DC of the Cabezo Beaza Industrial Estate and in C/Andrés Cegarra Cayuela, La Unión. The new warehouse also includes office facilities.

For the opening, the managers and team members from operations were joined by the President and the General Manager of Grupo Upper S.C. The company was honoured to host the Mayoress of Cartagena for the opening event. The SPAR partner operates EUROSPAR Supermarkets, SPAR Supermarkets and SPAR Express stores situated in urban areas around Almería, Granada, Murcia, Albacete, and Alicante.

Fragadis boosts team for summer season

SPAR Spain partner Fragadis currently employs more than 2,300 colleagues in its stores and added over 50 new team members to cover an expected increase of customers in tourist towns during the summer months. The number of new hires will increase in the coming weeks.

The seasonal staff will offer support in the areas of fresh food, at the POS, and stocking. The SPAR Spain partner offers seasonal team members the same conditions as permanent staff, including a good work-life balance and discounts on purchases in all the company’s supermarkets by means of the employee card.

The Spanish SPAR partner has a strong presence  in the provinces of Tarragona, Castellón, and Alicante with stores in popular tourist destinations of the Costa Blanca including Salou, Cambrils, Calpe, Gandía, Benidorm, and Alcossebre, just to mention a few.

About SPAR Spain

SPAR Spain was founded in 1959 when a group of wholesalers who wished to join an international organisation came together. As a result, the brand became the first voluntary trading chain to be established in Spain.

The head office is in Barcelona. It provides buying, marketing, communications, and brand support to the 13 regional partners. Together, the SPAR operators actively continue the expansion of the brand across the country.
