Laundry solutions from Spain

Girbau S.A. is a family company that has established itself as one of the main international groups in the manufacture of equipment for all types of laundries, regardless of size or activity sector.

<

Pere Girbau Barboso, great grandfather of the present management and a man who was convinced that the future lay in electricity, opened an electro-mechanical workshop, and thus Girbau was founded.

Fifty years ago, when Pere, Toni and Teresa Girbau had only been working with their father for a short while, they realised that the company's future lay in manufacturing industrial machinery for laundries.

It was time to face up to their first big challenge - manufacturing their own product. Things had to be organised. Pere would take charge of the marketing side, Teresa human resources, and Toni design and manufacturing. Between them they would manufacture and market the best product: reliable washing machines, with a good technical service and a team of customer-oriented professionals.

With four production centres, in Spain and France, specializing in the different product lines covering all the processes in an industrial laundry facility.
Also, Girbau has created two specialized divisions to deal with customer's singularities: Commercial Laundry Division: for small and medium laundries and Industrial Laundry Division: for heavy-duty laundries.

From the outset Girbau's philosophy has always been its closeness to its customers. In 1989 it thus began a process of internationalisation which continues to advance.

It currently has 13 commercial branches around the world – France, Cuba, United States, Unted Kingdom, Brazil, Argentina, United Arab Emirates, Germany, China, Italy, Dominican Republic, Australia and Portugal – reaching every continent, together with a distribution network and a technical assistance service in more than 80 countries.

There is no longer any doubt that Girbau is a quality brand and a benchmark company worldwide in the washing machine market.

Today Girbau is a company that is ready to take on new challenges, one that is open to new opportunities and determined to continue discoverig the future.
