New Hungarian warehouse for CELO
CELO S.A, the division of CELO GROUP dedicated to the manufacture of special screws, has built a new
logistic warehouse in Tatabanya, Hungary.
The company, with headquarters based in Barcelona, produces 8 million parts per day in an ISO/TS 16949
approved factory. The core business of CELO is the production of screws for plastics (Remform®, Plastite®) and
trilobular screws (Taptite2000®, Fastite®, Powerlok®) for the automotive, home appliance, electronics, toys
and electrical products markets.
“In order to improve our relationship with the
customers, and following the company strategy to be
close to the final users, we decided to build a
warehouse in Hungary. With this new facility we will be
able to supply the parts to the customers established in
Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and
Romania. It will also enable us to supply to the whole
of Europe, through our central warehouse in Barcelona
(Spain), the new facility in Tatabanya (Hungary), and
the logistic base for safety stocks in Lodz (Poland).”

Mixed initial reactions to CPD
revision proposal
The European Commission has issued a proposal for the revision of the Construction Products
Directive (89/106/EEC) for consultation.
The implications of the proposed revision are wide-ranging and potentially very significant for construction
fixings products. Simplification of the CPD is one of the key initiatives under the new strategy, “to clarify and
reduce the administrative burden of the CPD, in particular for SMEs, through increased flexibility in the
formulation and use of technical specifications, lighter certification rules, and the elimination of the
implementation obstacles that so far have hampered the creation of a full internal market for construction
products.” The proposal includes provision to replace ETA Guidelines (ETAGs) and the Common Understanding
Assessment Procedure (CUAP) by “a single simplified route, the European Assessment Document (EAD)”.
While SMEs have long been critical of the time and cost involved in achieving an ETA, which has been
seen as advantaging larger manufacturers, concerns are already being expressed that the revision
proposals, if enacted, could significantly undermine the integrity of the ETA system. A full copy of the
revision proposal can be downloaded from:
