The current company Domingo Acha y Cía., S.A., began its industrial activity at the end of the 19th century with the name of Acha Hermanos y Sobrino, focusing its activity on the manufacture of short firearms. We do not know the activity start date, because it was not registered. In 1921, it was registered under the name of Domingo Acha y Cía., S.R.C. In 1925, it was registered as Domingo Acha y Cía., S.L.
In 1964, it was registered as Domingo Acha y Cía., S.A., remaining until today. In this long period of time, and of course, the company has had to undergo various mutations in both products and media to adapt to all kinds of market needs, both legal, commercial and cultural.
Such is the case, that starting its activity as a manufacturer of short firearms, at present and as a result of a strategic plan carried out by the company in the 1980s, it was decided to channel production into two different lines, stamping under subcontracting. and the manufacture of gas infrared burners for domestic and industrial stoves. As a consequence of these decisions, it is possible to increase the order book in both sections, exporting in the burners section up to 50% of the total turnover to various countries, including the USA.
Currently, and as a consequence of the dollar parity and especially of the relocation of companies that move or make their supplies in eastern countries, we have seen our activity in the burner section reduced and as a consequence, we are forced to try to increase our quota in the section of STAMPING IN SUBCONTRACTING REGIME.
Regarding quality levels, at the moment we are certified under the ISO 9001-2000 standard, since we design both the product and the tools with the Solid-Edge computer program in our facilities.
