In 1958, Mr. José Asens Rebollo founded the company RUEDAS ALEX in the city of Barcelona. It started operating in the manufacturing of domestic castors for the important and rising industry of electrical appliance located in Spain at the time.
In the beginning of 1970, thanks to the important boost and acceptance obtained in the market, a new factory opened in the town of Rubí (Barcelona), which expanded the range of castors offered, adding a whole industrial one.
In 1989, an important and exhaustive market research, carried out by a specialised magazine in the sector ('Nueva Ferretería, Edition December 1989), awarded RUEDAS ALEX with the leadership in the Spanish sector, position maintained up until now.
In the year 2000, the current factory facilities were officially opened in the industrial zone of Martorell (Barcelona), with more than 4.000 m2 exclusively dedicated to the manufacturing of autorotable castors.
In 2014 new logistical facilities, built on a plot of 12.000 m2 in the logistics industrial park in Fraga (Huesca), were started up. It accommodated modern facilities with a capacity of 15.000 palletised cages where a novel dynamic shelves system was incorporated.
In 2015, AENOR designated RUEDAS ALEX as an expert chair representing Spain in the expertise committee for the renovation of the ISO Standard about domestic and industrial castors.
The international vocation was concreted in the year 2016, with the opening of an own subsidiary company in the American continent (Uruguay).
