Last March 2, MAPFRE opened a new head office in Paraguay to improve client and employee service and well-being. The ceremony was witnessed by Paraguay’s Vice-President, Juan Afara, the Industry and Trade Minister, Gustavo Leite, the CEO of MAPFRE in the regional area of LATAM SOUTH, Marcos Ferreira, and the CEO of MAPFRE PARAGUAY, Pierina Pumarol.
Situated in avenida Mariscal López esquina General Aquino, the new building has five stories of offices and common areas in 5,000 m2 of total space. As a result, a workforce of more than 200 employees can now be housed in a more functional and efficient manner. The first floor, open to the public, features a small square with gardens of low-risk indigenous plants. Additionally, the modern building has underground parking and makes it possible to save up to 45 percent in energy and reduce water use by around 30 percent, among other environmental benefits.
The construction project complied with the highest sustainability standards and used strategies that resulted in clean work and earned the international Leed certification.
MAPFRE PARAGUAY is thus reinforcing its commitment to the development of business in the country, where it operates since 1989 and where it has nine direct sales offices and 26 delegate agencies.
