Industrial Gradhermetic, S.A.E starts as a business in Terrassa (BCN)
Gradhermetic has its beginnings in a wood carpentry workshop located in Terrassa which was property of carpenter and cabinetmaker D. Jaime Colom Grau. Upon noticing that shutting windows and security was limited to the use of rollable wooden blinds, he realised that a style of blind that allowed for adjustment of slats was needed.
Gradhermetic outpaced the needs of the market and is established as a company
D. Jaime Colom came up with and put into practice the idea of a blind that, in addition to closing, allowed for adjustable the slats and controlling the amount of light. For industrialization and diffusion of this new and revolutionary product, the Gradhermetic Company was established on the 12th February 1954.
Steel starts to be used to make the original wooden product
This innovative product which was wood to start with was then made with steel, followed by profiled aluminium like it is today. With the incorporation of José Colom-Noguera’s company, the range of products increased to include the manufacture of false ceilings, wall faces and shutters.
Expansion. Construction of new factories in Avenida Béjar
Gradhermetic’s good work and selling a quality product meant that expansion was necessary. Thus, new facilities were created next to Gradhermetic central headquarters.
Acquisition of an aluminium casting machine.
Gradhermetic acquires an aluminium casting machine. This is done with the final aim of being able to have complete and utter control of the final product’s quality. This is what makes us different from most of our competitors, since we create our products from prime material through to home installation.
