Our strong passion for innovation has driven us to develop our tech, providing real solutions and added value to companies.

Based in San Sebastian (Guipuzcoa), we have developed arm in arm with our customers, first at a local level, then national, and today international via our steel division.

Today we are pioneers in coding technologies for hot steel products (1200ºC), leaders in markets such as Oil & Gas in the US and in high speed marking of the leading domestic beers and a benchmark in the industrial marking and coding sector.

We are proud to be a family company that has its eye on the future without forgetting our roots. With a team of highly-qualified professionals and our network of market-leading partners, we continue to work with the same enthusiasm, involvement and commitment that has been key to us for over 45 years.
