A strategic alliance between Bioibérica and Vall Companys to manufacture heparin for €25 million. The new company, called Biovall Heparin Science, will produce heparin through the extraction of the porcine intestinal mucosa.
The company will be based in Mercazaragoza and will create twenty new jobs. In addition, it will expand the facilities of International Casing Products (ICP), a subsidiary of Valls Company in the same industrial estate. The new plant will be finished in 2025.
Bioiberica is a company that produces the active ingredient heparin. 20% of this compound that is administered in the world comes from Spanish territory and 40% of that consumed in Europe and the United States is produced in Bioiberica.

Bioiberica administers 20% heparin for everyone
The general director of Valls Company, Albert Morera, explained that ” the pig sector has always been characterized by a very high level of circular economy, and with this project, we demonstrate it again by putting the company at the service of society with an essential medicine for human health.”
“A project where we consolidate productive excellence throughout our value chain in Spain in favor of health and innovation” highlighted Luis Solera, CEO of Bioiberica.
According to the latest public financial data of the Catalan company in 2018, it earned €34.2 million in 2018, more than double compared to 2017, when it closed the year with a profit of €15.8 million.
The group attributed these results mainly to the evolution of sales of this injectable coagulant, used to prevent the formation of clots in catheters. Its heparin division generated sales of €149.7 million in 2018, 62.2% more compared to 2017. In fact, these products account for 55% of the company’s total turnover, according to the annual accounts of 2018, which this newspaper has been able to access.
The Spanish market also grew but at a slower pace. Sales in the country increased by 16.4% in 2018, up to €75.2 million, while the increase in the rest of the world was 3.6%, with €51.3 million.
