Our values

In Gaviota, we believe that company values are more than just words; we consider them to be the guiding principles that steer every decision made.

Our History

The Origins

Founded in 1968 by Víctor Guillén Barceló as Forjas del Vinalopó, our company began by manufacturing tools for curtains. With Spain’s entry into the European Economic Community in the 1980s, we expanded our offerings with tubular motors and opened new locations. In the 1990s, we focused on awning systems, gaining international presence.

Innovation and Growth

In 2001, the merger with the Italian company Simbac led to the birth of Gaviota Simbac, specializing in accessories for blinds and awnings. We also modernized processes and expanded production capacity. By 2010, our global presence was consolidated, leading us to participate in major international fairs.

Towards a Sustainable Future

In 2017, we launched Bestende Srl, followed by the integration of Copentek in 2020 to offer more personalized solutions. In 2021, we introduced the MOWEE brand, expanding our range of outdoor furniture. In 2022, Aluit Srl joined the Gaviota Italia Group, further enriching our offerings. In 2024, following a Merger by Incorporation operation, Bestende Srl ceased to exist, continuing its activity within Gaviota Simbac Spa. Today, with a global presence and a production capacity of 60,000 square meters, we are a reference point in the industry.

Green Attitude

In Gaviota, sustainability is not just a goal to achieve; it’s our mission.

That’s why we are excited to join forces with Treedom, a revolutionary organization that has made it possible to plant trees remotely and monitor their environmental and social impact in real-time. With over 4 million trees planted globally, Treedom is not just a partner but an extension of our commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.

More Than Trees

With Treedom, we don’t just plant trees; we build futures. Every tree planted helps local farmers sustain themselves and their families, providing both food sovereignty and income opportunities.

Treedom’s trees not only absorb CO2 but also serve as a source of income and empowerment for rural communities. It’s a win-win for the environment and people.
