After a first period of tests, pre-series and training, in July 2006 the commercialization of the new developed family began.
The fulfillment of the high expectations regarding Reduction of Life Cycle Cost in the first implementations, led us to an excellent acceptance of the product by the first user customers to such a point that before completing one year from the beginning of the commercialization necessary an extension of the factory.
In August 2007, the construction of an extension of 15,000m2 began to complement the production area that was available from the beginning of 2008.
To the factory endowments of Marcilla are added since mid-2009 new regional facilities aimed at better customer service. Fruit of it are the Delegations with Warehouses of Catalonia, Levante and Andalusia.
And we started the internationalization of our products. We started to manufacture them in Mexico in March 2009 and in China in June 2009. In 2013 EXKAL France and EXKAL Colombia were born, in 2014 EXKAL Emirates and this last year EXKAL Belgium.
