History

OB’s story is the story of Gonzalo Obrero Ortiz, a man with an extraordinary entrepreneurial personality who, after working several years as a labourer in a carpentry workshop, decided to start his own business career in the company of six employees, building a warehouse of 2,000 square metres with the financial support of several local people who had confidence in HIS ability and professionalism. Almost forty years since its foundation, after the generational change in the management with Diego Obrero Blanco taking over at the helm, OB today remains a leading company in the kitchen furniture market.

Years 1978 – 1992

Gonzalo Obrero Ortiz founded the company GONZALO OBRERO, S.L in 1978. In its early years, the machinery in the wood industry was mainly mechanical and artisan. Sales were mostly limited to the provinces next to Córdoba. Over the years, increased demand as a result of EXPANDING THE SERVICE to the rest of the peninsula required an extension to the initial industrial buildings. During this period the company changed its name to MUEBLES OB, S.A..

Years 1993 – 2004

MUEBLES OB, S.A consolidated its position as a leading company in the kitchen furniture market and built new industrial facilities. These have an optimal production system to efficiently meet the increasingly demanding market trends. During this period, a generational shift took place in the management of OB with Diego Obrero Blanco taking the helm.

Years 2004 – 2014

The transformation of OB during this period was critical. With a new management team led by Diego Obrero Blanco and the expansion of the industrial plant, the company started to expand internationally by participating in international fairs such as the International Integral Kitchen Exhibition in Madrid (SICI) and the French Kitchen Trade Fair (SADECC).

Years 2014 – 2018
