A company with history
Isidoro Calvo Perez dedicated his life to packings, in a constant search for quality and perfection. It was many years ago when he was commissioned to design and build a braiding machine to make square braided packing. Four machines were built and installed in a company located in Santurce (Basque Country), in which he worked as technical director.
But it was in 1954 when Isidoro, after returning to his hometown and associating with José Llavador, began manufacturing gaskets on his own, with the help of new machines he had built.
In 1962 the company undergoes a division, being born this way “Juntas José Llavador” and “Empaquetaduras Braced I. Calvo”, settling in Hospitalet de Llobregat.
After 30 years, in 1992, machinery from two competing companies was also incorporated and, now settling in Rubí, the company continues to grow successfully and thus expanding its range of products.
In 2002 when the transfer arrives to Sant Esteve Sesrovires, where its production continues today. A few years later he underwent a name change as a result of the expansion of his products to different countries. Then it is called “Calvo Sealing”, as we know it today.
Also the Calvo Sealing logo hides its history in the strokes. And is that it is neither more nor less than the silhouette of the design and circuit made by the spools of thread in the preparation of the original two-way gasket, followed in the first braiding machine built by Mr. Isidoro Calvo Pérez.
As the creator of the same and founder of the company, with its initials the protagonists of the initials that complete the logo.
