The beginning of the MECÁNICA EGARENSE, SA
company dates back to the year 1952, when two gentlemen Salvador Guardia Bonet and Enric Bori Farre started the fabrication of fittings which were used in the conduction of fluids for centralized lubrication equipment, for all types of machinery.
Between 1953 and 1954 the first automatic lathes were introduced thus achieving a greater production capacity. This allowed an expansion in the market and the compression fittings were applied to compressed air lines.
Over the next few years the company grew as a market force and increased its manufacturing output by systematically adapting to the needs of the market. This continuing development led to the company moving to premises at 62 Gasometro Street in 1958.
In 1962, in order to continue to provide for the needs of our clients the company started to manufacture the threaded NPT
brass fitting (under ANSI B2.1
standard). A year lather in 1963 the range of products was extended in order to cater for the demand from the petrochemical sector. The company started to manufacture materials in Carbon and Stainless Steel and they were the first Spanish manufacturer to produce such fittings of the 3.000 according to ANSI B16.11
Standards as the threaded NPT
In 1965 the business enterprise became a Limited Company, being registered as MECANICA EGARENSE, SA -MECESA-
At the beginning of 1968 the first double ring compression fitting was manufactured under the name of MEGALOK
. In the same year the first provision of supplies for Nuclear Power Stations was carried out according to the guidelines of the ASME III
quality control programme. In 1988 due to the constant expansion of the company the present premises (2,700 m2, located at 35, Joan Monpeó Street, in Terrassa) were constructed.
At the new premises many significant new advances have been made such as the introduction of CNC Lathes and design programmes with CAD computer back-up, among others.
Due to our constant desire to improve combined with our willingness to adapt to the demands set by different technology, and not forgetting the valued trust placed in us by our clients, MECESA have supplied products to foremost chemical, petrochemical and energy products both in the national market and abroad.
