Within the central plains of Spain in the region of Ciudad Real you will find located the realm of the Garrido family and their metal manufacturing empire, Symaga. Leading the family owned and managed business from up front is the equivalent of the modern day El Cid Campeador, Alfonso Garrido. Like the legend of old who himself served Alfonso IV, Alfonso Garrido drives his companies expansion globally whilst at the helm of his ship “Symaga”, not so dissimilar to the global exploits of Christopher Columbus on the Santa Maria, with more than 90 percent of its business being overseas and outside of Spain.
Syamaga was established in 1985, and now 30 years on, how privileged was I to be cordially invited to their global headquarters and central production plant.
Along with a delegation of potential international customers from Poland I was given free access to explore this successful multinational organisation.
