Uralita is a Spanish construction materials multinational enterprise, founded in 1907. Uralita produces insulation, gypsum, roofing and piping systems.

In 2008, Uralita's sales reached 1007 million euros, out of which more than 55% was made outside Spain. Uralita has its corporate offices in Madrid. On December 31, 2008 it possessed a personnel of 4006 employees and 41 factories in operation Europe, and two under construction.

In July 2010, Spanish courts ordered Uralita to pay €3.9 million compensation to people who had lived near its Barcelona factory. The newspaper El País reported that this is the first time that a company has been ordered to compensate residents (as opposed to employees) for asbestos exposure.[2]
