75 Jahrestag

This year 2017, we are celebrating our 75th Anniversary.

It has been a long time since my grandfather began his activity in 1942, in a small workshop located on Calle Nació, 20 in Barcelona. Over the years, its activity has grown thanks to its innovative proposals and, above all, to the dedication of its employees and partners. It was there, where the mirrors for motorcycle and cars, interior lighting fixtures, horns so as the first mirrors for the mythical Biscúter were manufactured. With the Biscúter, started in the early 70’s exports and participation in national trade fairs.

My father followed the work that with so much determination had developed my grandfather and in 1992, he expanded the facilities by moving the headquarters to Sant Adrià Del Besós. The number of employees increased, added new techniques in design, creation and development of products were incorporated along with approvals. Due to the participation in European fairs, Arcol consolidates its International role.

Thanks to the labour and enthusiasm of our partners about designing, technology, marketing, quality, production and general management of the company, that was possible to open in 2008 the current headquarters and achieve the presence in more than 40 countries.

The effort and trust shown throughout our history, allow me to thank you for your collaboration among these first 75 years

And I would like to take this opportunity to invite you during the exhibitions FIIA Madrid (May 23rd to 26th) and Busworld Kortrijk (October 20th to 25th) to visit at out booth to celebrate our anniversary together.

Many thanks
