Precision technologies

Precision technology in different production fields has been and still is our core industrial know-how. This precision technology is a great value generator of our industry. Transforming and adapting this technology to market demand, with the support of reference research centres, has enabled industry to move from the production of arms to avant-garde sectors such as robotics and automation, from simple machine tools to cutting-edge 5-axis machines or additive manufacturing.

Companies in this sector are typically good at designing and integrating complex mechatronic systems in strategic sectors, such as machine tools, automotive, aeronautics, aerospace, energy or health, among others. Within the framework of the RIS3 strategy, the Basque Precision Technology District stands out in the field of advanced manufacturing as our companies apply the most innovative 4.0 industry technologies both to manufacturing processes and to products themselves.


We are manufacturers

“Doing a good job” comes natural to us; travelling the world with all the products we manufacture, crossing borders has been part of our industrial culture.

We adapt the available production resources towards new global market opportunities, having an industrial ecosystem that allows us to provide a good service on location and tackle any type of manufacturing project.

This singularity has favoured the presence in our sector of large groups of companies such as Danobatgroup, Etxe-Tar Group, CIE GroupEgile Group, Grupo Mek, Maher Holding, Grupo Cometel o EPC Group and market leaders such as Orbea, ABC CompresoresJaz Zubiaurre, Masermic, Microdeco or AVS Added Value Solutions, among others, support our ability as manufacturers.

In the middle of the Basque Country

The Basque Country, one of the most advanced regions in the world, ranks 81st in GDP per inhabitant out of a total of 330 OECD regions, according to a report by the Basque Government’s Directorate of Economy and Planning. It makes up 5.4% of the world’s population in high-income regions within the so-called club of the rich countries.

Located halfway between the Basque capitals, the Basque Precision Technology District enjoys a strategic position and boasts excellent accessibility thanks to constant improvement and the main airports.

The availability of many sites and buildings that can be converted to suit any purpose make the District a place with numerous opportunities.

In addition, it has a varied MICE offer (congress spaces and ample infrastructure available to companies) both in natural and coastal environments of great value and in perfectly connected urban towns, with a recognised quality of life and own identity and culture, which make the District a unique attraction.
