The ALFE company was founded in 1940, with the opening of its facilities in Bilbao (Biscay – Spain).

In 1960 the company moved to Derio (Biscay), where it launched a new industrial activity 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 useful surface area to 7200m2.
