Corporate_History

History

Cabycal's origins date back to Talleres Hefe, a small family firm based in Valencia which specialized in the manufacture of industrial burners. In 1985, Emilio Ferrando took over the business and transformed the company's activity, structure and location, which was renamed Cabycal in 1987.

Cabycal was founded with the aim to design and market custom solutions in the form of machinery for the surface treatment sector. From the outset, the company opted for a solid and innovative business strategy: to base their competitive advantage on the custom design of facilities for surface treatment and painting. Accordingly, we created a benchmark engineering department in the sector; we were the first Small and Medium Business (PYME) with our own project development and design team. This was a very ambitious challenge during a period in which engineers primarily worked in large industrial corporations.

The market evolution and the customers' new requirements inspired Cabycal to set forth on its path of permanent growth and reinvention.

At present, Cabycal offers innovative global solutions for the painting and organic coating of surfaces in a wide variety of materials.
