History in Images

Over seventy years of professional development, in which the third generation of family members are employed by and dedicated to the Company, has made the Foundry’s work a national and international point of reference within its field.


Since his early work in the forties, in his native town of Coca (Segovia), the Capa Master has, during the course of his professional work, sought to achieve constant development and innovation and apply it to the Foundry\'s work. With the assistance of his children, an industrial engineer and a fine arts graduate, he has achieved an ideal symbiosis of technological innovation and traditional craft practices.


The aim of the continuous reinvestment in the Company itself, over the course of its professional development, in all of the volume of work it has carried out, is to make the most advanced resources and new infrastructures available to its clients.
