News Image
Blu Digital Group has announced its latest milestone in its European expansion – the inauguration of a facility in Barcelona, Spain.

Nestled amidst the vibrant pulse of Rambla de Catalunya, the facility will extend the reach of Blu's extensive, award-winning range of content distribution, localisation, post-production, and media management services. In addition, Ramon Martos Calvo has been recruited to be the Managing Director of the new facility.

Blu Digital Group's forward-thinking solutions harness the power of its proprietary cloud-based software, BluConductor, providing a modern approach to digital content distribution and globalization services through a centralized global software platform that fosters collaborative efforts among all Blu Digital Group’s facilities worldwide.

Ramon Martos joins Blu Digital Group as the Managing Director of Spain. In this role, he will be instrumental in expanding Blu's award-winning products and services throughout the region. With his extensive experience in the Spanish M&E industry, Ramon brings a wealth of knowledge from his seventeen-year tenure at Deluxe Entertainment Services Spain, where he successfully revitalized the business as its Managing Director, propelling it to become the leading player in the Spanish market.

"Ramon brings exceptional expertise in digital transformation within the content distribution industry in the Spanish region," stated Paulette Pantoja, CEO of Blu Digital Group. "Considering his outstanding track record and strong industry relationships, it was evident that he is the perfect candidate to oversee the establishment and expansion of our new facility in this crucial region, driving the growth of Blu’s extensive range of products and services. We are absolutely delighted to welcome him to our esteemed senior management team."

Blu Digital Group's European presence now spans facilities in Greece, Denmark, Spain, and the UK. The Barcelona facility will serve as a central hub for content distribution, localization and post-production work, tailored to meet the diverse needs of the Spanish and global markets.

Pantoja enthused: "We're excited to offer our innovative software and services to Spanish media companies, streamlining their operations and broadening their audience reach. Our new Barcelona facility is strategically situated in the vibrant L’Eixample neighborhood, close to the commercial district Plaça de Catalunya, making it ideal for our clients and team."

This Barcelona office opening follows hot on the heels of the London office inauguration in early May, which delivers an extensive range of content distribution, media management, post-production, localization, and distribution services to existing and new clients in the region. The London office also serves as the European headquarters for the company’s cloud-based software division.
