About Embega

HISTORY OF EMBEGA

On December 14, 1972, Commander Eugene Cernan took a walk on the moon. He was the last human being to be there. That same year Embega was born, when a group of workers from AGNI, a manufacturer of stoves, cookers and household appliances, contacted Caja Laboral and founded the cooperative.

The cooperative started with 43 members who were dedicated to machining, silk-screening and lithography of metal plates for household appliances, automatisms, and other decorative elements. In 1979, the anodizing and galvanizing plant for aluminum profiles was started up, with 120 workers.

In the 1980s, part of the business was diversified, and two new activities emerged. The first focused on screen printing (printed sealing gaskets), and the second on the production of membrane keyboards for sectors such as vending and machine tools.

In early 2013, a new product line was launched, a natural evolution of membrane keypads: flexible, backlit and capacitive buttons and keypads, within the HMI division.

Embega's differential value over its competitors lies in the engineering-based solutions that the Villatuerta-based company offers to the customer and the knowledge of the customer's value chain, customized aesthetics, branding and the specific need of each customer. The pandemic led to a boom in orders, with an increase of more than 20% compared to the pre-pandemic period.

Acknowledgements

In 2013, Embega received from the Bosch&Siemens Group the "Golden Q" for the best supplier of the year for the quality of its products,

and now Embega has obtained from an important Tier 1, the qualification as "supplier A". A recognition that culminates a long trajectory of improvements and innovation in the screen printing business unit.

“Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer soluciones a través de nuestro modelo de innovación, que se basa en el concepto Market Pull, donde la innovación se alimenta de las necesidades y aspiraciones de nuestros clientes”

Embega and sustainability

Why sustainability?

At Embega, we see sustainability as an opportunity to innovate in the cooperative project, and we want to be leaders in adapting the cooperative project to a new era characterized by sustainability.

What is sustainable development?

Sustainability is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the capacity of the future.

Social sustainability

On the social level, sustainability promotes the development of people, communities and cultures to achieve an adequate and equitable overall level of quality of life, health and education. The struggle for gender equality, especially in developing countries, is another aspect that will shape the foundations of social sustainability in the coming years.

Environmental sustainability

In its environmental aspect, sustainability defends the fact that nature is not an inexhaustible source of resources and ensures their protection and rational use. Aspects such as care for the environment, investment in renewable energies, water saving, a commitment to sustainable mobility and innovation in construction and sustainable architecture contribute to achieving environmental sustainability on several fronts.

Economic sustainability

Sustainability also seeks to promote economic growth that generates equitable wealth without harming natural resources. An egalitarian investment and distribution of economic resources will enable the other pillars of sustainability to be strengthened in order to achieve complete development.

Sustainable development goals

Our commitment to sustainability is a commitment to our raison d'être. We understand that social progress, environmental balance and economic growth must go, and only then will they go, hand in hand. That is why we contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

HIBRIME project

Development of a robust hybridization process of rigid SMD components on sheets with electronic printing, which allows obtaining 3D devices via thermoforming and/or plastic injection, giving rise to innovative HMI solutions with transversal applications in different markets with great potential, such as automotive , domestic sector, IoT or wearables.

Execution period: 04/01/2021 to 03/31/2023
Place of execution: Villatuerta, Navarra
Co-financed with CDTI, FEDER and the Government of Navarra

GASMART project

Research and development of a new electronic rotary control for gas cookers with capacitive, resistive or magnetic technology through which the opening position of the gas valve can be electronically detected, which will allow electronic control of the opening,as well as such as the integration of visual notifications through backlighting that inform the level of power of the gas. All this would allow the entry into a new range of products, with an increase in turnover of 10%.
