INOXPA is global leader in the manufacture and sale of fluid handling equipment. A key to INOXPA`s success has been its strategy to act as a global company while maintaining its headquarters in Banyoles (Spain) where there is also its research and development department and an engineering centre working in coordination with the centreso in other countries. INOXPA`s production centres are distributed all around the world, affording the company great flexibility. INOXPA constantly invests in I+D+I to adapt its products to new applications and to the approved guidelines which guarantee the quality and suitability of the products (mixing skids, CIP skids, product recovery systems, pasteurizers, manifolds, process automation, pumps, agitators, blenders, mixers, valves, and fittings) for each industry.
Describing INOXPA as a global company with local roots summarises the values that we stand for Founded in Banyoles, Spain, INOXPA is a renowned and long-standing business group specialised in the manufacture and trade of stainless steel components (pumps, agitators, blenders, valves, etc.), management of processes and services for different industries.
Its commitment to innovation and continuous improvement has allowed INOXPA to enter the global market without compromising its product quality or customer relations.
Production centres distributed all around the world, affording the company great flexibility
INOXPA has centres distributed all around the world, affording the company great flexibility. This helps to establish synergies which, in turn, balance the price-quality relationship and allow the group to enter into high-potential emerging markets. This coordination with other countries, in addition to providing more competitive prices, allows the Banyoles headquarters to dedicate more time and resources to innovation, a factor which differentiates INOXPA from its competitors.
Most of INOXPA´s growth has been based in Europe, particularly in the Mediterranean area INOXPA´s conceptual design and search for solutions are activities centred in Inoxpa ISP (Vale de Cambra-Portugal), Inoxpa ISF (Chambly-France), Inoxpa ISM (Chisinau-Moldova), Inoxpa ISD (Thiene-Italy), Inoxpa ISV (Valencia-Spain), Inoxpa India (Pune-India), apart from our centre in Banyoles.
Globalisation has removed boundaries and led to the creation of a single, highly competitive global market The fundamental objective of this international trading network is to remain in constant contact with the customer and to adapt in situ to customer requirements, given that each region has its own specific conditions. One means of developing the company´s strategic plan also involves investing in developing countries which demonstrate a higher rate of growth than European countries, and which, therefore, offer valuable markets in both the medium and long term.
This is the backbone of INOXPA´s philosophy, demonstrated in our constant commitment to meeting our customers’ needs
Describing INOXPA as a global company with local roots summarises the values that we stand for: we are committed to service and to the love of the land. Providing good customer service cannot be achieved without close customer proximity. As an organisation, we must be able to meet the demands of our customers in the shortest possible time.
This is the backbone of INOXPA´s philosophy, demonstrated in our constant commitment to meeting our customers’ needs. The company´s journey over the last four decades has focussed on achieving this objective. While the growth and progressive development of its human, technological and industrial infrastructure has allowed the company to expand its operations over five continents, efforts invested in the internationalisation of the company have always maintained their characteristic local and familiar dimension.
Love of the land is another of the fundamental values that underpin our business mission. Love of our roots which have enabled us to become a reputed Catalan company and, of course, love of the town where the business was born: Banyoles. Banyoles is the capital of the Pla de l'Estanycounty, situated in the province of Girona, one of the most dynamic regions in all of Spain and, indeed, in the south of Europe . This is where the heart and nerve centre of the company can be found.
The spirit of service and of achievement are what make up the company’s DNA. Strength of character, willingness, resolution, effort and determination are what define us in this global market where we are determined to succeed.
INOXPA, a global company with local roots
We function as both a local and a global company at the same time. This may seem to be a contradiction in terms, but it is not. In order to become a reputed multinational company, we must also invest in local markets, converting them into centres where both production and consumption take place.
INOXPA promotes the innovation of production materials and the generation of wealth in all of the markets where it operates and has manufacturing capacity. These accomplishments at local level strengthen the company as a whole. This is known as internationalisation, a concept that we have already embraced at INOXPA, given that no modern-day company can survive without having global presence. If companies do not internationalise, then they will not survive.
Any company that is not capable of expanding beyond their local market is doomed to fail. INOXPA is seeking to expand internationally in a global market which presents many opportunities. The company is focussing on markets with high potential for future growth, owing to their large populations, expansive surface area and wealth of natural resources. The BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries, among others, fall into this category.
Technological advances made at the headquarters in Banyoles are communicated to the rest of the production centres around the world. These advances could not be achieved, however, without the inputs sent to us from our centres in Eastern Europe, Asia, North Africa, the United States, South Africa, Australia, France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, England, Portugal, India, China, and the rest of Spain. We can consider the INOXPA Group as one single body, where the vitality of the body is measured as much by the strength of its heart as by the total power of all its parts together.
The group known today as INOXPA found its roots in an old water pump factory in Carrer Girona, Banyoles, almost four decades ago (1972). Originally called Bombas Félez, it was the company´s general manager and alma mater, Candi Granés, who steered the business towards specialising in the manufacture of stainless steel pumps for the food-processing industry. It wasn’t a new product concept, so new developments were essential in what was an already saturated market.
This marked the beginning of the company´s internationalisation process
In 1980, INOXPA opened a branch in Perpignan, France, which was its first branch outside of Spain. This marked the beginning of the company´s internationalisation process which has continued over the last 15 years, with the establishment of a hundred distribution points around the world. The company´s central distribution point remain in Banyoles, in the heart of the Pla de l’Estany region.
