Arteche establishes itself for the first time outside of Spain, in Venezuela.
In 1979 CACEI is integrated into Arteche, leading to the company’s first established presence abroad. This constituting a clear sign of the enterprise’s international fate and drive.
This implemented expansion step takes place in Venezuela for several reasons. The founder spent seven years there in exile, during the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War, and some of his children were born there. Furthermore, it was an important market for Arteche, which it had already penetrated, securing access to all of South America.
