Quimipol founded in 1963 by Josep Blanch
EIn 1963, Josep Blanch Ferrer founded the company Quimipol in association with Poliglas and they began to work in the field of technical plastic manipulation and transformation. The company’s first site was in Carrer Sant Antoni Mª Claret in Barcelona. A team of eight people started to supply the chemical and pharmaceutical industries with fans, PVC vats and other equipment. Also in this early period, the photography and graphic arts sectors began to be a very important client for the company.
Expansion of the workforce
Thanks to the good work and efforts of the founder and his team, in 1973 Quimipol moved to larger premises in Barcelona. As customer orders grew, so did the number of employees, to allow the company to offer a local, high-quality service. It was at this point that Quimipol’s anti-corrosion fans began their journey to success.
New materials and products
Creation of the R+D department
It was a time of major technological breakthroughs in new materials. That is why, in 1983, the R&D department was created to develop products made from innovative materials such as PP, which increased the efficiency and performance of anti-corrosion fans.
Thanks to this research, the range of anti-corrosion fans was extended and the company also began to manufacture fume cupboards and extractor hoods. And the company went international.
An international company
Once again Quimipol needed more space, and the company moved to its current facilities of over 2,400m2, in Sant Adrià del Besós, to enable it to continue growing. The change enabled production diversification (numerical control) and the product range for the chemical industry was expanded to include fume cupboards, gas scrubbers and wet benches. Expanding markets.
A mission to innovate
Innovation as a goal
Quimipol’s specialisation in anti-corrosion fans and its close collaboration with manufacturers of laboratory furniture, developing extraction systems for their products, shows its commitment to the environment.
Today, with a consolidated position in the chemical industry market both nationally and internationally, always keeping products at the forefront, breaking into new markets and constant innovation is the company’s daily goal. As well as meeting the present and future needs of our customers.
