ALFE Cutting was founded in 1940, with the opening of its facility in Bilbao (Biscay – Spain).

In 1960 the company moved to a new facility in Derio (Biscay), where it expanded into new product areas by purchasing new, more versatile and higher-capacity machinery in response to customers’ demands and to the requirements of a constantly changing market.

The company’s latest transformation took place in early 2009 with another move, this time to the town of Artea (Biscay), where considerable work was done to expand the facility’s usable surface area to 77,500 sq. ft (7200m2).
