ITMA aims to promote all the activities in terms of technological development and scientific research required by our customers.

We have two head offices in Asturias, one at the Technology Park of Asturias in Llanera and the other one at the Principality of Asturias Business Park (Parque Empresarial Principado de Asturias (PEPA)).

Since our first steps in 1991, we have contributed to the drive and development of the business fabric through technology applied to materials, as a strategic tool to improve competitiveness, implementing the following activities:

  •  Research and development projects related to materials, products and processes.
  •  New technology-based products and processes, contributing to the establishment of new economic and business activity areas.
