)-- Caixa Capital Risc provides venture capital management for La Caixa. Through its fund which is specialized in industrial technologies, called Caixa Innvierte Industria, Caixa Capital Risc has made the investment of 800.000 euros into Xtraice. The aim of this capital injection is to establish the company as the global leader in the manufacturing and distribution of synthetic ice rinks. According to its business plan, Xtraice will quadruple its annual turnover in the next four years.
Caixa Innvierte Industria is the new vehicle of the Caixa Capital Risc which has the objective to invest in companies which have their head office in Spain and which operate in the sphere of industrial technologies, specialized in technology and internationalization.
Since its creation in 2003, Xtraice has quickly positioned itself as the leader of the sector for two principal reasons. Firstly, it has created a unique and patented formula based on a system of auto-lubrication which maintains the perfect condition of the ecological ice in all temperatures. On the other hand, the patented system has achieved a level of quality which did not exist on the market until this moment. Numerous specialists and figure skating and ice skating professionals believe that it is the brand’s synthetic ice rinks which resemble most closely to conventional ice. To achieve this level of quality, Xtraice have made a large investment in technology and also in studies and investigations about the morphology of ice skating. With this, they have achieved a minimum abrasion level and a high gliding ability which allows the professionals of the sector to use the plastic ice rinks of Xtraice for their training whilst parks, shopping centres and leisure centres all over the world are installing ice rinks for the amusement of their local residents.
Xtraice has evolved a great deal in recent years and has conquered the global market. Its principal clients come from the United States where there is a great affinity for the sport. However, due to the fact that Xtraice’s ecological ice rinks can be used during all seasons and even in extreme weather conditions, more and more countries are able to take up the practice of ice skating in its various forms. The UAE and Brazil are amongst the markets which have been conquered by the company.
