The mNACTEC branch is the most emblematic construction of the wool textile industry in Catalonia

The Govern has agreed to declare the Aymerich, Amat i Jover Factory - a branch of the National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia in Terrassa - a Cultural Asset of National Interest in the category of Historic Monument. The Govern has also approved the protection of its surroundings.

The Aymerich, Amat i Jover Factory is the most emblematic building of the wool textile industrial sector in Catalonia. The factory is a synthesis of design, using and perfecting traditional materials and techniques, such as the use of Catalan vaults and the sawtooth structure which combine with new materials such as cast iron columns to create an extremely beautiful and functional building. 

Following the design of the architect Lluís Muncunill i Parellada, the factory was built between 1907 and 1908 by Terrassa industrialists Josep Aymerich i Grané, Pau Amat i Bogunyà and Francesc Jover i Barba, for the manufacturing and sale of wool products.

The monument is made up of the main warehouse, the office building by the entrance to the premises opppsite the Rambla d’Ègara, the shop and repair workshop constructions, with the former water deposits adjoining the back of the warehouse, the courtyards, chimney, and the original constructions which are now part of the museum.
