URSA is a modern company with 70 years of insulation expertise.
URSA’s history goes back to 1949, when Poliglas was established in Spain. In 1988 it was acquired by Uralita Group. The German firm Pfleiderer AG also entered the insulation business in 1991. The course of these two companies ran parallel – Poliglas growing predominantly in Western Europe through the construction of new factories, and Pfleiderer growing especially in Eastern Europe – until 2002, when Uralita Group purchased Pfleiderer’s insulation division. In 2004 URSA was officially born, and since then has not stopped expanding within Europe and beyond, launching innovative and award-winning insulation products, refining its already customer-oriented approach, providing even more services and solving our customers’ needs.
Poliglas is established by the Masiá Mas-Bagá family, specializing in the business of natural lighting and molding of thermoplastics.
