“A company of family structure as an international leader”
The origins of Group Ingemar go back to March 1952 when “Industria General de Mármoles” (Ingemar S.A.) (General Industry of Marbles) , was founded by Mr Lucas Aranzamendi Ruiz, in Guipúzcoa, Spain.
Initially the company started its activities processing materials extracted from their own marble quarries, like Negro Marquina´s quarry which is situated only 60 Km from our plant in Usurbil, and already in the year of 1959, the transformation of granite started. It was from that moment that the Group of Companies developed in an astonishing fashion and today it can be considered as one of the main producers of granite / natural stone at world level.
The Group currently owns 4 production plants and more than 30 centres of distribution of its products, in countries like Spain, Portugal, France, England, Belgium, Holand and Poland, relying at the same time on commercial agents in countries as far apart as Italy, Turkey, Russia, Brazil. India and the USA.
Currently operates around 40 quarries in Spain, Portugal and South America considering the supply and control of raw materials, a key factor in our development.
In 1982, and under the name of Ingemarga SA, we opened en Guitiriz (Galicia) the second production plant of the Group, dedicated mainly to work with the Spanish granites of that area, excavated mainly at the Group’s quarries near the plant. This is, probably, the most updated and capable plant of Europe within our area of activity.
In 1990, a third plant was established at La Puebla de Montalban (Toledo) that took the name of Ingemarto S.A. and at a later date in 2001 a fourth plant was opened in Merida, called Craminsa S.A. Currently these two plants, due to their strategic location in the country in terms of quick deliveries for our clients in the centre and south of Spain and Portugal, have become also centres of distribution.
Our Group has known a constant and gradual development, working a large range of exclusively owned and imported granites as well as marbles, limestones and slates.
In general, the products offered by Group Ingemar are, on the one side, slabs and tiles in different finishes to be distributed to professionals in the trade and, on the other side, the supply of cut to size and finished pieces for the completion of projects all over the world, being this a field in which the Group has attained a renown prestige.
The development, implementation and constant renovation of the most updated machinery in the industry, together with a human team highly motivated and integrated within the company’s philosophy, have made it possible the expansion that has placed this industrial group at the front line of the international granite industry.
