Founded in 1967 by Santiago Cruz Aguilera, SANJO has grown from a small workshop to a well-established company based in Barcelona and experiencing growth.

Founded as a specialist in the construction of progressive dies and conventional stamping, SANJO has always been able to incorporate the technology needed to offer its customers a comprehensive service. In 1984, after having started assembly process operations, it acquired its first fineblanking press, committing definitively to this technology and breaking into the European market. Later on, heat treatments would be added with the creation of RUBISAN and the machining section would come into being.

Its rapid growth, based on precision, quality and innovation, led it to move to its current plant in 2002, and more recently to open commercial offices in Stuttgart (Germany) and Shanghai (China), as well as a new factory in Virginia Beach (USA).

With a strong family character, SANJO has been able to combine the tradition and know-how of a small workshop with the vision and development of a large company. Today, it is a company that specialises in the stamping of precision parts, with customers in 34 countries. Its track record has earned recognition in the business world at a national and international level.


At SANJO, we have always had a strong commitment to quality. For us, it is important to work with respect for health and safety and the environment by ensuring that all of our shareholders (customers, employees, distributors, suppliers, etc.) express satisfaction with our services.
