History

The origins of Argraf go back to 1939, when Lucio Torroba Andrés founded and started a graphic arts business that was the seed for the later Grupo Argraf.

Formally constituted in 1978, Argraf S.A. initually focused its production on the wine and spirits label sector, thanks to its strategic situation in the heart of the winemaking region of La Rioja.

In 1985 Argraf Ebro S.A. was created, a division of Grupo Argraf to cover the increasing demand for label for brands of other food products outside the world of wine, the main customers being food canning companies.

In 1989 the Group began an expansion process based, above all, on extending its facillities and a high level of ongoing investment in state-of-the-art technology. this is the process that has represented the greatest success of Grupo Argraf, as it has placed it at the head of new printing and labelling techniques, offering its clients exclusive services that no other supplier can provide in Spain. Ongoing investment in R&D+i is the key factor in the current, and undisputed, leadership of Argraf in the sector.
