ASCER President, Isidro Zarzoso passes away

January 2018

Tile of Spain has announced the death of Isidro Zarzoso, President of ASCER (the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers' Association).  A very popular and well-known personality in the ceramic tile industry, Zarzoso died on 3rd January, 2018 at the age of 76 years.  He is survived by his wife, three children and grandchildren.

Zarzoso was a self-made businessman, with extensive experience in the ceramic sector, and came from a family with a long tradition in the tile industry.  He joined ASCER in 1982 as member of its Governing Board, and he assumed the presidency in 2013 after the death of Joaquín Piñón. 

Zarzoso proved adept at steering the association through complex economic times. One of his accomplishments during his term as President of ASCER was the EU's renewal of antidumping investigation into the Chinese industry, and he also led the successful opposition to the anti-dumping investigation brought by Morocco against Spain. 

A stout defender of the industry, Zarzoso's strong convictions, clear vision and belief in the power of collective thinking will all be sorely missed.
