Our History

Our History



The company MAPE was founded in the 1950s by Jon de Madariaga y Aguirre. Right from the start it became one of the most important companies in Spain in the field of workplace protection and stood out for the professional aspect of its services and its extensive range of products. To overcome the tricky period early in the 1990s it underwent a deep transformation carried out by Imanol de Madariaga y Torre, who from that very moment onwards committed himself to a system of quality management based on continuous improvement and aimed at offering its customers a better and better service.
