Simogas is founded by Josep Maria Simó. At first, custom metal plates were cut with a mechanical shear that had been purchased on credit. This machine, which marks the beginnings of Simogas, is still present in the workshop.


The company begins to grow, which makes it possible to invest in new machinery and hire more metal processing specialists. Simogas becomes a specialist in the manufacture of furniture and metal structures but especially in stainless steel products for sale to third parties. Over time, the manufacture of planchas for the hotel world adapts to the domestic market of bars and restaurants.


Simogas founded engineering and mold manufacturing departments that were managed by Josep Maria’s two sons, Sergi and José Luis, who soon took over the management of the company.
With the arrival of the second generation, internal production processes are modernized and Simogas becomes more international with one main objective: that domestic professional planchas become more and more known.
