Quality and Innovation are the key words in our company and the pillars of our growth, which has always been based on these principles. The implementation of quality policies, together with a meticulous choice of employees and partners, enables us to satisfy our customers.


Several quality control procedures are in place during our production processes to guarantee the success of our service. Before getting to work on the articles, an inspection is carried out given that the quality of the articles has a direct influence on the final result of our coatings. We believe it is essential to control quality in the various phases of the process to minimise faults. 

Our coatings are certified by competent entities and controlled internally to meet standards.

Research, Development and Innovation is at the heart of our company, whereby we invest in innovative production processes, always with stringent quality control.

Our RDI department comprises highly specialised staff in Material Engineering, Physical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Furthermore, we have in-depth knowhow in the field of PVD coatings that allows us to develop customised solutions.

The customer’s need is what we base our development efforts on. We are alert to the characteristics and criteria of each customer to develop suitable solutions to meet their demands. Each development is monitored individually during the entire validation process until integrating the productive plan with mass production.

To validate our coatings we carry out a battery of tests that allow us to guarantee the quality of the coatings. Furthermore, we work in partnership with certified external laboratories to complement results, and whenever the customer wishes, we test the coating applied to its articles.

Our goals are to supply high-quality coatings recognised by the customer as such, perfect our processes and invest in innovation and development of new products at a competitive price.
