Since 1942

In 1942, using his great professional experience, Sebastian García Alcaraz created his own tannery together with other family members. They were very difficult years, but with hard work and dedication they overcame their problems and gradually achieved their goals. The history of the firm has been marked from the outset by continuous development both in technology and in the company premises. They began with artisan manufacturing, using vegetable tanning techniques and horse hides for the manufacture of riding equipment. At the end of the 50's, they started using bovine hides and chrome tanning techniques to supply the footwear industry. The company premises expanded in order to accommodate the continuous arrival of new machinery and subsequent increase in output. In 1970 a new factory was opened in which, with successive extensions, the company remains today. The company's shareholders also changed over the years and the firm had several names until it changed to Sebastian García e Hijos, S.A. in 1974.
