Current 'Corporación Patricio Echeverría' is the result of a century of work, innovation, adaptation and internationalization started by Patricio Echeverría Elorza grown in the culture of steel during the industrial revolution.
Born in July 9, 1882 from a humble family in the town of Legazpi (Spain), Patricio stood out at 15 years of age as an applied and adventurous youth that learnt quickly and well the forgery works. When he was 18, he moved to Mondragon to work in the Vergarajauregui, Resusta and Company Workshops while he also visited other installations to broaden his knowledge about the manufacturing of steel.
In 1904 he decided to establish himself in Legazpi under the name of Taller de Herreria Patricio Echeverria. Receiving small orders, like the balcony for the town hall and other buildings in Legazpi allowed him to continue with the business and, fruit of his dedication, in 1906 he registered first patent in Madrid for the manufacturing of a sheet steel rake and a hoe.
Patricio Echeverria faced the challenge that many young entrepreneurs face when they have an idea: obtaining financing. The small workshop required an investment to become a factory and to install the necessary technology in order to produce patented rakes and hoes. At the early age of 26, firmly convinced of the promising future in the manufacture of farm machinery, Patricio creates Segura, Echeverría y Cía, convincing the businessman Pedro R. Segura and another two partners, Romualdo Echeverria Orueta and Prudencio Guereta Irazabal. With 12 employees, he mainly manufactured hand-tools and carried out forging and repair works for other neighbouring companies. Nevertheless, from the start he assumed that he could produce sufficient so he could attend to and stimulate the markets far from Urola and, therefore, he very soon specialised the production developing different models of tools according to the different needs of each region in the peninsula. That way his expansion started.
He studied the markets and travelled searching for the best technologies and competitive advantages to maximise the excellence of the product and client service.
Entrepreneur and with an advanced character, Patricio Echeverria understood very well the importance of creating a brand, and of the constant work needed to maintain it. That is the only explanation that the Bellota trademark continues being a referential trademark of the market.
Nowadays the Coporation Patricio Echeverria is undergoing a transformation process for growth through a culture open to change and the needs of the client.
