Gestión Integral de Cementerios GIC
NOMBER S.L. was incorporated in 1990 and was a property company specialising in operating concessions. The company was founded by the Viñas family. It later merged with the companies of the Ventura and Fenes families to create Altima, the largest Catalonian funeral company.
In the same year Nomber won the concession for Parc de Roques Blanques Regional Cemetery, and since then it has continued to expand with the running of new concessions: Sant Cugat del Vallès, in 1997, and El Prat de Llobregat and Sant Just Desvern, in 2001, among others. In 2005, NOMBER S.L. took over Gestión Integral de Cementerios S.L. and GIC de Nomber, S.L. was created. GIC de Nomber, S.L. is currently the largest cemetery management company in Catalonia. Its human and technical skills, experience and knowledge of the sector make GIC de Nomber the best qualified company when it comes to helping city councils manage their cemeteries, optimising the financial management and ensuring perfect monitoring and control.
